I believe I have suffered libel per se. I was terminated and the causes for termination were untrue, and with that in my employee fall no one will want to hire me in the future.. I feel like I've been black balled...They only trained me for two Weeks because they were short staffed and needed me immediately. it's even written in my personnel file I was to be trained for 4 weeks
2 weeks day
2 weeks on nights
And they went.back and crossed out and edited the paper after the termination meeting because I brought that up, as to hide the fact they didn't provide me with proper training.
I never received any verbal written or any warnings for the "causes" of termination they are allegating and proper protocol for discipline requires there to be corrective action/ counseling and record of it, me signing acknowledging what I need to work on.. none of this ever happened.
I believe I was truly let go because I sent an email after receiving information that the company that provided out food had a major call due to listeria. In the email I included the information from the recall which included signs and symptoms and that.listeria is particularly dangerous is pregnant women and elderly. I advised until we had it contained that the.pregnant employees avoid eating here just to be safe (we get free meals anyway so they didn't lose money) I also stated to watch the residents for signs and symptoms of potential/possible infection. I thought I was doing the right thing by informing the employees of the recall. the next day I received an email requesting a probationary hearing then the following week after letting me work 2/3 of my shifts, I had my meeting and was immediately terminated.
They wrote down 4 other causes for termination other than.just the email and now I feel my career is literally going to be affected from now on.. It was my first nursing job, I don't want to have to omit that I worked there because I don't want to be dishonest with future employers, but after they find out I was let go I feel like no one will listen to me or believe that they made up the causes for termination..
again there are no disciplinary actions in my file whatsoever! this was completely out of left field.
None of my hiring paperwork they even gave me was the correct paperwork. they had me fill out CNA paperwork and policies, I never received nursing hiring paperwork and/or policies. They also never gave me a handbook. Anyway, none of my paperwork in my personnel file is signed by the administrators acknowledging I passed training, had they read and signed it they would have realized they never provided me proper paperwork.
