Hello! I'm a new LVN who works in a psych facility, I have been working there for two years, the first year I worked there part time as a CNA while getting through the LVN program, after I got my LVN license in May I got hired as a on call LVN around July I was usually getting 64-72 hours per every two week pay-period, everything was going wonderful until I got moved to the A.M. shift recently, I work in a facility where 99.9% of the employees are Filipino and I started working the AM shift a few months ago,
I knew from back when I was a CNA that they had some kind of drama going on between all of them, and I also knew that they like to start rumors and get people in trouble specially people who don't like to socialize with them or are on the quite side, last month I notice that my schedule change from 72hrs to only 38 and when I went to speak with the DON she told me that the reason for me getting less hours is because my fellow CNA co-workers complained about me being mean when I don't even have time to talk to them unless is something work related, also I've noticed for a while that the new Filipino employees get more hours than me even when I have more seniority, also my fellow co-workers don't like to get reminded that they don't suppose to speak their language while their on the floor or providing patient care, so now I can't not even tell them that because they go straight to the DON and make stories up just to get back at me
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.

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"...
The poster brings up real life issues....
