I accepted a position for 13 weeks. I have 4 to go. In the middle, I got sick and missed 5 shifts. These will have to be made up. I didn't get paid for those shifts of course, and that really hurt my finances! I need to make them up and I planned to. HOWEVER, my company docked me $10/hr from my pay for those shifts this week w/o my authorization for rent!
Something to think about when on a travel assignment...don't get sick or miss shifts. It is a major hassle. I have been trying to contact the manager of the unit, but we keep playing phone tag.
This agency placed me in a dangerous position (staffing), and they are not too sympathetic. I don't think I can get out of it w/o being penalized. :angryfire
