Contract Buy Out

  1. Hello, I am a contracted agency nurse and I signed a 16 week contract that ends in the middle of August. I have been working for the the hospital and love it! However, the only other hospital in this particular hospital system closed and now they have canceled ALL agency. Do they legally have to pay me all the hours my contracted was for?

    It depends on whether that is specified in your contract. Please review it a speak to your agency.

    (in most cases, the answer will be "no", otherwise, they would just keep you, as they wouldn't save money, by getting rid you. In most cases though, they have to pay the agency a penalty)
