Working PRN

  1. HI,
    I have recently taken a Nursing job PRN with a very Large Co. In the interview, I had agreed with the Co., that traveling was never a problem.
    What they DID not tell me, is I would be traveling ON MY OWN TIME, and only paid for TIME ON THE JOB. Yes, I did get mileage, but when They said " travel mileage was paid" I presumed Travel Time as Well.

    Meanwhile, I was asked to drive over 4 hours and work 1 hour. Since I refused, my relationship with the hiring manager has gone down the drain.

    Any ADVISE...I know, I should have gotten it all in writing but ...
    Too late now. ANYONE KNOW IF:
    " IT IS Normal NOT to be paid for travel time to and from a job?"

    This is ridiculous. You can't drive 4 hours and work for 1 hour. I hope you didn't have to sign a contract agreeing to work for a specific length of time. You need to find another agency. This is why I think it is important to take all these agency contracts to a lawyer before signing them. It is worth a couple hundred dollars to make sure you are not taken to the cleaners.
