When I started on this forum I was working full time at a dialysis clinic. Then it moved to part time.
Well we now have a new director who is changing everything!! There arou about 5 of us who work 1 day next month. The new director is working us just enough but not firing us, so no unemployment.
This is crazy! She's changing patient secheduals and sending some to the other clinic and the patients are PISSED!
She's trying to eliminate the night shift which is making patients mad also. We have quite a few that still work and that is the only shift they can make!

So I'm onn the search for probably 2 more part time jobs(Unless I can find full)!

Wow, that sucks. I'm sorry.

My dad's company did something similar to him. They eliminated his position and moved him to a new position officially. He actually was doing the exact same thing for about half the pay. He stuck with it only because he had a hard time finding a new job. Thankfully, after a year of searching, he found his current job.

Have you applied for unemployment? It's not just for losing your job completely, you may be able to get something for having your hours so drastically cut. Good luck!

That is AWFUL!!!  Is there any kind of 'overseer', HR or board or something that you can lodge a complaint with?

Any way you can check the labor laws to see if you have any recourse in maintaining your previous hours?

I would rather not just yet. My husband is working so we are ok. That and we are close to closing on our house and I don't want that to effect it.
