I had my meeting with HR at my work today. It was supposed to have been yesterday, but it had to be moved to today because of the holiday. The meeting ended up being between myself, 2 admins (neither one the one who started it) and the owner of the nursing home, which surprised me. I have some good news and some bad news. The good news: the suspension is off my work record, replaced with a write up for insubordination due to questioning the admin when she told me to leave my post. That I can deal with. The bad news: I no longer have a job. Don't get me wrong, I wasn't fired. I agreed to be "laid off" in exchange for 4 weeks severance pay. I guess they are afraid that I might talk bad about the nursing home or something. I'm not supposed to discuss any of the details with anyone I worked with, but, knowing the rumour mill, I'm sure by know they have me being thrown out the window wearing a dress or something. The gooder news: Remember when I said that my wife is a department head and a different nursing home across town? Well, she talked to their DON, and she want me to come in Saturday for an interview for a part time STNA positon (30 hours a week). If I get it, it would be $2 an hour more, which would almost work out to what I was making a week.
