Sorry the boyfriend is a CNA at a CATHOLIC, nursing home...
He is a Catholic himself... We are not married but engaged to be... and if not for time and money would be getting married (date set).
We are still planning on getting married but with us both being full time students and working full time to make ends meat, we definetly can't afford a wedding nor do we have the time to plan for one.
I know we could just go to a court house but we feel that is a special occasion that should not be rushed or disregarded.
I am also currently pursuing the path of becoming a Catholic we want to be married in a Catholic church and have our child baptised at a Catholic church.
The latter is being arranged and will occur.
He pulled the code of conduct for the facility printed material in the HR office. IT states concerns to call two different people so we will be doing that tomorrow.
We also would like to inform them, that they are not following the code of conduct expected of him and their employees and how could they expect everyone else to follow a code they themselves do not.
It says things like, treating each other with dignity, respect, self-worth. Promoting a balance between family/personal life and work life. A promise to use each others gifts, skills, and wisdom to serve those being served and those providing service.
Its disgusting to think a Church run facility, for a faith that encourages reproduction. Disagrees with birth control, and abortion.
This is why they don't look negatively upon us, because we are planning to get married asap, we didn't use birth control, and didn't opt for an abortion. We have faced our sin of premartial sex and our addressing it.
We have decided we will gather a HONEST Dr. note from my OB/GYN stating he was present for the birth of his child.
We have also decided we will keep that attached with a copy of his birth certficate in case he ever needs evidence of why he recieved a suspension.
We feel honestly the suspension is a "negatively looked upon form of unpaid leave" which is all we honestly asked for.
They are short handed because they have such a high turn over. So I am sure they will be glad to have him return to work on Monday. Where he will continue showing up on time, as scheduled.
We are also willing to accept the the suspension because we feel confident that any place hiring him in the future would look at the date the suspension took place, and reason to be nothing short of pitiful. (Especially considering a Dr's statement he was present for the birth of his son)
