- Apr 17, '12 by amoLuciaAshley made very good points. But if you gave up a previous position and since this is a new position, you may want to move quickly and seek legal advice. It all boils down to how strongly you feel you were misled and how much time, energy and expense (personally & professionally) you can afford or want to spend. Good luck!
- Apr 17, '12 by caliotter3Like another said, only you know how badly you need this job. I would push the matter and if unsuccessful, then make the decision to stay or go. It is too early in the game to be treated like this by a new employer. And yes, I was told one thing and then the employer did something else. But it was not until some time later that I discovered what had happened, so I was invested in the job. But I did end up leaving. Nothing like being lied to to ruin the employer-employee relationship.
- Apr 17, '12 by Marshall1Thanks for all the replies...I spoke to HR and employee benefits at length yesterday..the reimbursement for mileage the orientation is now being looked at..as far the the student loan assistance..no one can really tell me anything definitive so I am applying for it through employee benefits dept. instead of going through the person at HR - figure it can't hurt to at least try. Am not intersted in getting an attorney..as some pointed out on here - too expensive and would create more issues than I'm willing to stir up at this point. As far as trust, I definitely do not feel the same about this employer since this began..other nurses and staff have said what some one here have said - get everything in writing and expect problems as this employer is "famous" for saying one thing then doing another..so I am going to keep everything in writing as far as requests off etc. I do have the promise of orientation mileage in writing - from 3 people actually -so that helps.
In the end I think employers, especially in todays economic situation, have more on their side than employees do..nurses seem to have lost their "voice" to some degree in the past few years - or maybe it's just where I live..I don't know..I am going to chalk this up to a learning experience..I've not had this happen before with an employer but it doesn't sound like this is unusual...I plan to stay because right now, aside from this HR screw up, the job is not bad and I am fortunate to be in the position I'm in with what it does offer and I'm too tired to spend hours filling out applications and going on interviews! This is not a dialysis position - it's a medical office position for a large corporation.
- Apr 17, '12 by merleeYou have this in writing. Keep pushing, especially the person who wrote the letter.
I relied on what people said, and found out that their word was a waste of time.
Hard to get past that letter
- Apr 18, '12 by SugarcomaI had an issue with my current job. I was hired for full time at a certain rate of pay and signed an offer. Later my rate of pay changed and status was reduced to part-time. This makes my benefits more expensive. My recourse is none, however, because the offer letter stated it could be changed at any time. This has caused some ill-will on my part against this system and unit. There are other issues that make it a not so great place to work, but because I need the job I am still there. I am looking for new employment outside of this system altogether because of this experience.
