I work the 11-7 shift at a nursing home as a lpn. I go to school after work from 0830am to 0100pm. My job now says no one can leave until all staff shows up, even if the morning nurse whom is my relief shows up. How is this fair if my school schedule isn't affecting my work schedule.
Unfortunately they can do this for business reasons. When you signed up you should have had a written agreement that you could go to school. At that point they would probably have agreed to it. Look for an LPN position with home health care as those hours may be more stable. Or just see how often you will have to miss class. But unless you have a contract with them specifying you can be free after your shift.....I think you are out of luck. I'm assuming that there is no discrimination and you are not in a protected group. If you are, then journal all of this over time as to whom gets to go home and who doesn't. And nursing homes are notorious for being underfunded and not the best mangers.
I am licensed to practice law only in Pennsylvania and New Jersey. Therefore, my knowledge is based primarily on law in those two states and general and Federal legal concepts. My answering your question is offered only as a free courtesy to provide you with general non-specific information. It is intended to help you when you seek and find a local attorney licensed in your state. This answer does NOT create a client-attorney relationship nor create any expectation of confidentiality or privacy concerning your public post. My answer is based only on the limited facts/information that you have presented in your post. For any lawyer to give you full and reliable advice, would require at the least, full one-on-one dialogue(s) with questions and answers being exchanged and any evidence being presented. Before taking any action or deciding to take no action, I recommend that you consult with a local attorney(s) of your choosing; either private or with a non-profit organization that helps individuals without the means for hiring a private attorney. Good luck in your search to find a legal solution to your situation.
