Can you not hire an attorney to help find a job?

Posted

I guess this is out of their line of services. But can a nurse hire an attorney to find a job with stipulations? I guess that does not exist?

What is it you would expect an attorney to do?

To sue the government for being unemployed?

I guess that’s true. I assume their job only involves using the legal system... but it sure would solve alota problems with finding a job with stipulations.

is there no alternative to applying and being turned down at all the employers for having stipulations

I guess there is no shortcut

I also asked this question on Avvo. And this is an answer I received

“Pending your stipulations and review of the incident and the Boards Order assistance could be provided after a full consultation.”

how do you get that assistance (with getting hired somewhere)

I don't know where you are but if you are in So Cal I could get you and interview at and extremely Diversion/Probation place.

No lawyer is going to help you get a job. The time to hire a lawyers is before your case is adjudicated so that your contract can be fully explained and you can ask for changes. Remember that except for a few isolated cases most nurses under monitoring with stipulations (myself included) earned our predicament.

You will find a job but you have to go to work in an area you never envisioned before such as Psych, Dialysis etc...…...

Good Luck

To hear an attorney tell you some version of “I’m telling you so” comes with a price. Your friends, relatives, and even total strangers can tell you that for free. Consequences for behavior should have been considered prior to the behavior.

It is up to individual employers as to wether they want to hire someone or not. Given a set of stipulations, an employer might be ‘unable’ or ‘unwilling’ or work with them. An example of unable would be a high PCA/narcotic usage floor such as post surgical and a person with a narcotic key restriction. An employer that is unwilling to work with a person, even in a position that does not impinge on said stipulations is really not a place I’d want to work anyway.

I don’t think you can legally force any employer to hire you. Were I the employer, I think I’d be a bit resentful at being forced to hire someone that may not be the best candidate for the position (contract and stipulations not withstanding), just because they sued.
To me the bigger issue is the programs saddling people with cookie cutter stipulations that make it very difficult to find a position, depending on what a particular nurse’s background may be yet still demanding high dollar drug tests and other fees, some of which may have zero to do with that particular nurses reason for being in monitoring. I’ve known of nurses that have completed their sentence in a program but still cannot get out because a stipulation was that they work a certain amount of time but yet cannot find a job. Therefore they are stuck in monitoring purgatory.
These programs babble about ‘getting nurses back to work safely....blah blah blah’ but yet put up hurdles that make that difficult if not impossible for some people.
