Home Health LVN advice needed..ASAP
- 0Nov 23, '12 by nurse-doeI am a new employee LVN for a home health agency. I recently started working for this agency in September. I was trained by shadowing another LVN staff member. I started seeing patients early/mid October.
I have yet to be paid for hardly any of my visits dating back since I started seeing patients.
Also, I am hardly being scheduled to see any patients maybe 2-3 one hour visits a week. Although my pay is in the 30$/hr this is a very low amount of hours
First question is: What are the minimum amount of hours they are allowed to be scheduling me??
Second question: If I have not received any payment for the patient visits in October and after what is the time frame I have to wait to report this issue??
Note: I have had texted conversations and phone calls with both one of the bosses and a payroll/ supervisor. They continue to tell me "next payroll you will get paid".
ANY ADVICE WOULD HELP GREATLY! THANK YOU!

- 0Nov 30, '12 by realnursealso/LPNI don't know about you, but I don't work for free. I would nicely say that I needed my paycheck because I work to get one. If it continues, I would resign. Then I would call the Labor Board in your state. How you handle it hinges on if you want to stay. I'm hoping you have back up paperwork, or a datebook showing the hours you have worked. It is illegal for them as a business to not pay their employees.
