states: Compensation is based on 40 hours each week, according to___ usual payroll
policies. Employee will work during normal business hours of operation (7:30 to 5:30 M-F). Situation: Prior to starting work, was told would be scheduled 7:30 to 4:30 for a total of 8 hour days for a 40 hour work week (during the hours of operation and not outside of hours of operation, no weekends or evenings). Now and since beginning work, have been told must work 7:30 to 5:00pm, even when there is NO work to be done and if I've stayed late the day before (I'm salary and not hourly). I was WRITTEN UP for leaving prior to 5pm, even though all my work was done and I had worked 8 hours in that day and 40 hours that week. Is that appropriate? Can I be put into the disciplinary process even though my contract states that I am to work 40 hours per week?
2. I was given a write up for situations that were blatantly un-true. It was said that I abandoned my patients and drove off --this did NOT happen. I had to speak to the Board of Nursing, regarding my license and I informed the Office Manager -she was fully aware - I informed her supervisor, who in turn sent me an email confirming my call. I went outside to make the call in privacy
after fully informing my team and never left the premises. The office manager wrote me up and said I abandoned my patients when I drove off (WHICH NEVER HAPPENED) and I am afraid this could affect my license. Is there anything I can do about this legally???
3. After this recent write up (which is actually more detailed and contains more incorrect information) I feel that I cannot work at this facility without worrying for the safety
of my license. However, the contract states that I must provide 90 days notice, which makes me really fear for my license. But if I have cause to terminate my employment, I do not have to provide 90 days notice- does any of the above information apply to that clause?
