    Is this the same place as, you mentioned in another post, that you have been suspended for pre-signing the MAR? If that is the case, it seems that there's more to this story than just "discrimination"...
    Yes this is the same place, they started drastically reducing my hours starting in January, but like I mention in a previous post they were doing this even when I was working full time as a CNA, they reduce me to CNA part time and then to on call LVN, and today I found out they are actually going to fired me on the 4th, I'm not going to get another chance like the other employees who have done worst things than pre-signing the mars, just let me add that I have no other disciplinary actions in my file other than this 4 day suspension for pre-signing the mars

    I mean is this legal? can I get my hours cut for supposedly being mean without my employer doing an investigation? Please help any advice will be greatly appreciated.
    Unfortunately, in most cases, yes. From your employers point of view, it may be easiest to cut your hours if you are viewed so negatively by coworkers. I realize that you think your coworkers are making things up about you, but your DON seems to believe them. Unfortunately there is not much that can be done if that is the case.

    I find it strange that if they didn't like you as a CNA that they would offer you a position as an LVN. I tells me that this reduction in hours may be related to staffing issues more so than a punishment for you.

    They 'are going to' fire you on the 4th? If you require terminating, you require terminating. They seem to be setting the stage for you to receive unemployment, since it makes no sense- and to let you KNOW, even, they 'are going to' fire you? Take notes, take names...

    Meaning, how would they explain that you were fired 'for cause', when they tell you in advance? If they 'had cause', you would have been fired already. Not to mention the time that has already lasped since the incident happened?

    Hello there yes they are going to terminate me on the 4th, after my 4 day suspension which is from April 1st-4th on the 4th I have a meeting with the DON but I talked to her this past Friday and I was made aware that they are planning on terminating my employment, so I pretty much know that they are just going to give me my check and send me out the door, and I strongly believe the reason they didn't fired me on the 26th is because they did not have anybody to cover my shift so they decided to put me on treatments until they had somebody to replace me, the new person started training the same day I was giving a suspension notice so now they have replacement for me so they are letting me go, and yes it was kind of weird how they took so long to suspend me since the incident happen on March 10th and I was giving a suspension notice on March 26th, they are not giving me another chance to learn from my mistakes and correct them, even know the DON said that what I did had not adverse effect on the patient care I provided the day so I'm aware that they are going to fired me Next week for sure.

    "You're a bad nurse. You haven't hurt anyone, but in a couple weeks we're gonna have to suspend you. After a few days of suspension, we're gonna have to fire you". This is not being fired 'for cause'. Start your unemployment claim, make it as detailed as possible. Be sure you mention that your hours were cut way back when, it shows a pattern on their part. And what type of manager would allow any employee, in and field, to continue to work after being informed he was going to be fired? The liabilty is outrageous.

    Hello again there well she didn't even said I was a bad nurse, when I went in there to asked what they were planing on doing with me, she just told me straight up "well we are thinking about terminating your employment with us, but I can't give you a decision until the 4th when we meet" at that the time I was "well do you want me to just resign right now?" and the DON was "well like I said just wait until the 4th and I'll have a decision by then" I'm seriously living a night mare today was my last day of work with them, and I didn't even wanted to go to work because I feel soooo USED by this company, I already filed for unemployment but I know they are going to fight it so I might have to appeal it if they do and take it to court.

    Are you part of a union ? If you are, you should definitely get them involved, if not it would be HR as someone earlier suggested.... Unfortunately as Others pointed out, they are within their rights when it comes to giving or lessening your hours since you are not considered permanent ( full time/ part time)... But that's not to say they have other "reasons" behind the scenes for doing what they are doing.. But if I read correctly, they already stated they were thinking of terminating you? I'm pretty sure if your terminated it happens on the spot. It sounds very unfair what is happening and they're may not be a whole lot you can do, and even if you could, why stay at a place that's treating you unfairly. My advice, do as much as possible to get HR involved and resign.

    Another thought, try to take the option of resigning if it comes down to that. You don't want future employers asking why you were fired. Especially if its not truly warranted. Good luck
