Has anyone out there had any similar experiences or eye opening experiences with nursing agencies?
For several months I had worked with a Nursing Agency called MSN. The local branch was in Augusta, Ga. I had been enjoying it. I started participating in their 401k. After a couple months I had put in 0ver 1400.00 . I called the financial company one day to get loan for tuition purposes to learn that money taken from my pay was never sent to the financial holding co. The financial company advised me to contact my employer. When I started to work with the MSN payroll the local branch manager became belligerent and hostile and physically assaulted me by pushing me and telling me I was being petty by looking into such issues. I had never been loud or disrespectful in any manner at any time. I had tried to explain to the Director that it was being worked out and that payroll personnel were going to research my account to find where the money was. I kept all copies of my pay stub that shows all the daily deductions from my pay. I was paid daily. To this day I don't really understand why she reacted that way. I was terminated. The termination letter I received said that they could terminate with out reason and that they choose to no longer have a relationship with me. That's the reason????
I did file an assault charges against the Nursing Agency Director. To date I have not received any of the money taken from my pay. I did receive a summary of account recently from the financial holder and they have stated they only have around 450.00 of the money taken from my pay. Unbelievable. I have never had such a thing or been treated this way in my entire working life. I am still shocked. I thought I had made peace with this subject. Obviously not, I was assaulted and had my money taken. I feel no different then if street thug had snatched my pursed and knocked me down on the street. Well now its up to the court system. Nurses should be careful with nursing agencies. Learned the hard way.
