No rehire !!!!!!!!!!

  1. Can I ask everyone which hospitals in Dallas have the practice of labelling their employees as No rehire?

    If there is no offence on the part of the employee and they served their notice period but left the organization before 6 months , can they still do that?

    Not just in Dallas, but 'they' can make whatever hiring policies 'they' want as long as it does not discriminate against protected classes.

    You should take the comma out of your title - it completely changes the meaning of your post.

    How does it violate that. There is no discrimination. Any company can deem anybody a do not rehire. No comapny has to hire someone. And they probably felt after the money they put into training you, they got no return on their investment and won't risk that again with you.

    You didn't do anything wrong, but that doesn't mean the company has to rehire you.

    Training and orienting nurses costs money. New employees who leave soon after their training are a much worse investment than employees who stay and work for a good while after orientation. Hospitals, like any other business, dont like losing money. It's another one of those reasons why the unofficial ettiquette is to try to stay with a job for at least a year before moving on in nursing.

    Hospitals elsewhere are hiring new grads under contract with financial penalties for leaving before a year or two. It is what it is.

    Also note that in the DFW area and most of Houston, hospitals and other medical providers utilize Group One, a credit reporting agency that moonlights as a reference service. If you are marked as "Do not rehire" you can be blackballed through Group One and it will be incredibly difficult to find work in Texas.

    You had an opportunity- you walked away from it. Equal opportunity does not mean freedom from consequences.

    mmj, I can't help myself here: I agree with you 100%, and that's why I also will be here with my tiny violin when I read stories about how hospitals just can't get enough help and have trouble with retention and every other permutation of staffing difficulties. THEY TOO will reap the consequences of treating people like widgets and then going beyond even that to "punish" people. I will have no sympathy.

    Guess who suffers from blackballing? Hint, in the end it's not hospitals OR nurses, in particular.

    How on earth did you come to that conclusion?

    I agree that the hospitals spend a lot of money in orientation and training. Although the employee's track record is clean and highly appreciated and the employee left not because of a new offer but because of unsafe working conditions there should be no policy of "no rehire". If the hospitals spend the money on orientation they should also know to retain the good people rather than just labelling someone.

    Look, we get it. You're ticked off. Maybe you're just venting but your complaints are a bit over the top. Do you honestly think that the hospital will agree that the working conditions were "unsafe"? I highly doubt it. What they see is an employee that they dumped money into only to have them leave before they got a return on their investment. It's business to them. You still haven't answered why you think this is discriminatory.

    Well by all means, let us defend the practice of seeking out those at a serious (financial) disadvantage and having them pay for the serious (and rather pervasive) problems in hospital work environments!

    I know, I know...that's their choice if they want a job!

    "It is what it is" ONLY because when nurses present arguments against it, they get this false dilemma thrown back at them. You want a job or not?

    Come on, people.
