The title says it all.
I've been working at a LTC facility for 5 years now. I started as a CNA, and I've been working as a nurse there for a little over 3 months now. When I was hired as a nurse, they kept going back and forth on whether the position would be full-time or part-time. I made it clear to them that I obviously wanted full-time, but would take any hours that I could get. Basically, I was told that I would be part-time but they would try to schedule me for as many hours as they could, and it would eventually go to full-time.
Well, since then, I've been getting 32-40 hours a week consistently, with maybe ONE week a 24 hr/work week (our schedule is monthly). I talked to our HR lady today, and she said that to be elegible (sp?) for full time benefits or pay in lieu, you need to have an average of 30 hours a week quarterly. So as long as the average is at least 30 hours a week per quarter, then you can get benefits. She still has my status at part time, and says that the DON needs to hand over the status change over to her.
I'm going to talk to my DON and ADON about this, but I feel like I'm getting taking advantage of, and they are known for beating around the bush when it comes to talking about issues.
Has anyone been in this kind of situation? I don't want to leave my job, but if, after talking to my boss I'm still not getting benefits, I may have to leave..
