Questions on hours/staff cuts. Can someone give me some advice about hours cut to 30-32 hours, mostly less than 32, and if a manager can promise that employee status, such as remaining full-time, and insurance benefits will remain the same. I tend to be apprehensive.
Anyone know where I can find information on this?
Also, we lost a tech, and this manager has no interest in replacing this tech stating that she will rotate techs from another unit, so each tech gets used to working in our facility instead of having a stable tech, by the way our patients hate this. When she rotates these techs they are not scheduled to open the facility, they only come at 1200 till close which is till 2000. From the other unit 2 different techs asked to work at out unit on a regular basis the manager refused to allow them to be scheduled on a regular basis stating that wouldn't be fair.
My question is, since we were taken over by a large company does this manager not want to give us a regular tech because she knows our facility will be closing down? There have been some hints that we will be expanding, but I tend not to believe this d/t the reluctance of receiving the stable tech that we need. We are a 6 chair unit, on M/W/F we are full all three shifts, on T/Th we have 1 shift full. We have 2 (full time) RN's with 2 RN's that can come in and help when one of us full time nurses call in sick/vacation, and 2 (full time) techs, but in need of a 3rd tech (part time), incase one of the full-time techs call in sick/vacation, this is the one the manager won't replace.
