I work at a nursing home in nj for over 10yrs as a recreation assistant. I’m also certified as a cna & has done some cna work also when asked by my supervisor. I recently found out all my hours that was worked for all these years weren’t under the recreation department, but instead held under the nursing department, I only found this information out due to a recently new hire in staffing/ payroll Dept, when checking records. She explained she could not keep my hours under nursing dept because I was not working as a cna for whatever reason it had been put there In the beginning, which I hadn’t a clue, so it now leaves her reverting my hours back to the rec dept, and among everything hours in the rec dept has been cut; and in order for me to keep my full time position my hours will need to be divided between both departments rec & nursing dept
I apologize but your question is not clear. You seem to be suggesting that one department pays more than the other. Further, are you losing hours by being I the recreation department and not the nursing department. I would suggest contacting an employment attorney to discuss your situation with specifics. Good luck.
Reality is that you got paid for the time at obviously the right rate otherwise you would have complained. Money is money. As long as it is the right amount. I've seen people paid by many different departments. As long as you get your hours and pay you should be happy. And you are an "at will" employee and they can cut your hours and cut you pay as long as it is not based on discrimination or retaliation.
