work there after being fired?Register Today!
- by NamasteNurse Mar 22I was terminated from a facility 2 years ago, worked elsewhere since then and now am going to an agency. The agency works extensively with the facility that fired me. Can or should I go and work there as agency? thanks for your answers...
- Mar 22 by marycarneyProbably not - and you need to be upfront with the agency about this NOW to avoid big problems LATER.
- Mar 22 by uRNmywayEh, I think it would depend on the circumstances. I agree with marycarney that you should be honest with the agency though. But 2 years is a long time. There could be change of administration during that time, change of charge nurses, HR, etc. Up to you I guess.
You could always just give it a shot, if they will even accept your profile. That is one of the advantages of being agency, is we have the freedom to tell our employers we don't want to return somewhere.
- Mar 31 by SuzieVNDoes the agency know? If yes, they should have contacted the place for clearance- many places have policies that former employees cannot work there via agency, either for a set term, or forever. (Used to be you could quit, go agency for much more money, then you'd end up working in the same place anyway- that's where I'm told that policy hails from).
Two years is a long time- I'm sure the whole staff has changed at least once, so the person who fired you is long gone, might not matter any longer.
