  • California RN per diem seniority

    I work have worked as a per diem RN in California for almost 20 years at the same hospital. I am not in a union. When I first became per diem, I was cancelled. The excuse for canceling me first was that I was least senior. Now that I am senior, I still get cancelled. Now it is arbitrary. My employer has stated that since we are not union, they don't have to cancel by using seniority. Is this legal?

    Yes, it's legal as long as you don't have a binding employment contract or CBA to the contrary.

    Seniority is not a protected "class."
