Is anyone familiar with Saint Luke's policy or HR policy's? If a person was asked for their resignation and was given a severance, can they ever get a job back in the system or blacklisted forever?

The best way to find out eligibility for hire is to call and ask. There may be other things taken into consideration of eligible for rehire, not eligible for rehire for a set term, and not eligible for rehire permanently status. Some may be influenced by manager and HR discretion and some may be set in policy.

Depends on the organization. A friend, after working 17 years for the same hospital, gave 4 weeks notice, willing to train her replacement, but was told she would never be hired again within the organization. No, she did not have any issues with her employment. She was leaving for a better opportunity and more money. Such nastiness is what gives the profession a bad name.

Guess I don't understand, that if there were no issues and gave plenty of notice and willing to train her replacement, why she would never be rehired again. I know of one circumstance of a nurse who was told that if the competencies were not completed by a certain time, they would not be able to keep their job. This nurse was put on a no hire list, but low and behold when the time come and they needed a nurse, they were allowed back in the organization.

This seems like the biggest issue to me.

Most places will clearly explain much notice you need to give in their HR policies, and as long as you follow those policies, you shouldn't be marked as ineligible for rehire by the system (even though that particular manager might be unwilling to hire you back if they're feeling pissed off and petty about the resignation).

Now, 'if a person was asked for their resignation,' that might be a different story. If it's a situation where the person has had performance issues and manager is telling the employee, "You have two options, either you can resign or we can fire you," then it's more likely that the person would be ineligible for rehire. Ultimately, hospital HR is the only group who can answer your question for sure, and it may be addressed in the HR policy guidelines or even in a union contract.

I honestly have no idea what the HR policies states, but that sure is good place to start. Thanks!

Someone once told me that a common practice in their organization was to tell a departing employee that they would be eligible for rehire, then before the door finished closing as they left, their employee file would be immediately amended to read the opposite.  And I have seen that for some reason, rehire or no rehire status not even being discussed, that a person trying to return for some strange, strange reason can't get past first base again.  AFAIAC, I take it for granted that once I leave an employer, that is it.  I don't count on being able to come back.  Easier on my psyche that way.

That's crazy. I had no idea that's how things went down with HR.WOW! the things we learn........ This particular nurse did speak with HR and asked if he was ousted for ever with this company, and HR responded  "not necessarily". So who knows what that really entails. Guess I'm not really sure why anyone want to go back to a place like that anyway.
