I have been working for the same agency as a full-time case manager for over a year now and recently things have gotten so bad, I feel like I'm being forced to quit. In October the agency went from an hourly rate of pay to per visit. All of the nurses were told we would have to sign a new contract on the spot or be forced to resign. The new contract stated the agency would no longer count drive time between patients towards overtime calculations, which is illegal in the state of CA. My first pay check after the change was short about $700. Mostly for case conferencing meetings, admin time, and promised additional $$ for taking patients out of my area. All of this was approved in writting, yet they told me flat out they were losing money and they weren't going to pay. I did file a complaint (still pending) with the labor board. Next, they started shorting me on visits and paying visits at $5.00 per visit on my next check. I luckily keep good records and when I questioned them they told me they investigated my claim and I was actually overpaid for 6 visits!! I laughed and said I had all of my patient signature sheets to prove my actual number of visits. Still they havent paid anything. Now, the icing on the cake. My boss ordered me to go give TPN (to declot a PICC line), that I have never done before or been trained on. I told her I didn't know how to do it and she told me "I told the patient you were an expert, so you better pretend you know what your doing". Then she told me to get my training on Youtube. WHAT! Of course I refused and sent an email to the owner of the agency who was angry because I told the patient I wasn't trained on giving that medication. Now my employer has locked me out of my email and I'm sure they are deleting all imcriminating emails regarding my pay and the Youtube comments. Little do they know, I created PDF of all my emails and have them on a flash drive. What a corrupt agency.
