  • SC Law Re: Position Deletion

    I am a RN in SC hired specifically to work every weekend (24 hrs.) and being compensated as if I work 36 hours. I have a Baylor/Weekend Option position as it is referred to in Nursing. I have the job description and agreed upon hours and compensation in writing from the HR Dept. I kept the orginal job offer letter. Lately, the hospital is making severe cut backs and I am fearful that, although I am an exemplary employee, my position will be deleted or altered financially. Are there any legal safeguards to protect me? If not, then is there a required notice that I must be given before the postion is deleted or altered? thanks!

    Unless you have a valid, enforceable employment contract or are covered under a collective bargaining agreement that prohibits or limits it, the employer can eliminate your position at any time under the circumstances you describe without you having any legal recourse. Why would a legislature pass a law requiring a business to continue to have to employ workers it cannot afford?
    I don't respond to Private Messages unless the moderator specifically refers you to me for that purpose. Thank you.
