Hi to all,
My wife is a nurse who recently quit her job at a state (michigan) hospital for patients who suffer from emotional illness. She tried it for over a year and after being assaulted 3 times by patients, forced to work double shifts (without notice) and working understaffed almost continually (hard to hire help when they get beat up on a regular basis) she finally gave up one night and sat down with her supervisor and after a long talk handed over her keys and quit. The next day she emailed her formal resignation and later received via the US Mail a letter indicating that she was fired for leaving her post and that the record of her firing would be sent to the State's licensing board. Her union rep (weak) is representing here in a hearing with Director in a couple of days and I don't expect much in the way cooperation from him so i am looking for recommendations from those who have been down this road before. Most people are trying to argue that they were fired rather than quit so they can collect unemployment so there does not seem to be a lot of discussion on this situation.
Thanks in advance for your help.
