Company changing how we are paid

  1. 0
    Been with this company 9 years- in 2 weeks they are changing the LPNs from hourly to pay per " unit" (NOT per visit). Our PTO is changing as well, instead of paying PTO at the rate earned, it will be a lower rate (17% lower from my calculations). So, the 80 hours I have waiting to be used will be paid at say (for ease of calculation), 20 dollars/hr vs the 24dollars /hour under which it was earned. Feel as if I've been robbed here. Anyone else paid by "unit"? Not sure how non visit time will be compensated (phone calls, courtesy visits, conference etc) We have a meeting Tuesday where things will "be explained" . Not sure if I can work like this.

    Any thoughts?

    My agency pays per visit. I also have an hourly rate. I clock in for case conference and for times when I think it took a sufficient amount of time to do something. Such as when I am scheduled for a SOC but it falls thru and ihave to spend time hunting down paperwork and rescheduling another. Another example is if it takes me more than 30 min to get to a pt house I can charge for an additional regular visit. Or if a SOC takes a ridiculous amount of time ( say more than 2 hrs) I charge for the SOC + a reg visit.

    I was hoping you would update this post. I am curious about "unit" pay. I hope this meant more and not less. Where I work the nurses have not had a pay raise for 3 years and two days of vacation was taken away per year.

    Well, we've had one paycheck with the new system-- It was decent, but now we are being told that all non-visit activity will be "approved" or "disapproved" If disapproved, we don't get paid for that time. DON and I are gonna have a talk-- the past 2 days of NVA has been "disapproved". "the laborer is worthy of his hire". They announced at the beginning of the year that we would not be getting raises D/T medicare cuts, THEN in Feb they announced the pay per visit , with the line of paying per industry standards. uh I need a pair of hip waders for that one
