I assumed a contract was standard practice for NPs, but I've just found a contract will not be drawn up for my new job. Previously I worked as part of a research study so things were all different. Now I've been offered a permanent position and when I asked about when to expect my contract, I was told this employer does not write contracts for NPPs.
How, then, will I argue that I'm being scheduled for more shifts than we agreed to? Or that I was told I would have $2500 in CME? Or that I would work two weekends per month? Without a contract, they can schedule me to work 20 shifts/month and all the weekends if they want and I have nothing to use for my argument. Am I nuts to expect a contract?
