Ask a lawyer and get answers to your legal questions
Thanks so much for your patience and thank you for requesting me. So, there's a couple of things that we should unpack:
1. Confidentiality - Unfortunately, people don't generally have a right to have their names blacked out if they're being referenced in someone else's employment file. Oftentimes, it's necessary to have their information so that way investigations can be completed thoroughly.
2. Like I mentioned before, it's possible that this may be a violation of the good faith and fair dealing principle that is outlined in every agreement, including employment agreements. Under the Uniform Commercial Code Section 1-304, every contract comes with implied promises from both parties that they are going to be acting fairly toward one another. The failure of one party to act fairly toward other can result in a breach of contract. Accordingly, she could potentially turn the tables on the hospital as a result.
There’s a site that I’ve used in the past where you can find a good template for advising of a breach of contract. It's a bit easier (and cheaper) than going through litigation and I have seen it be effective in the past. If this doesn’t work, sadly, the only other option is to either go through an informal mediation or file a lawsuit in your local court. This website is also pretty cool because they have some state-specific breach of contract forms that you can use as well. Click here to choose your state started.
Did you have any other questions for me?
I mean that she may be able to sue for a breach of contract since she has a possible case that they didn't provide her the training that could have helped her save her job.
So strange! What state is this again? Michigan, correct?
I actually have a copy. Here you go.
You got it. You can edit that template to say whatever you want:-)
