I've been employed at a hospital for 16 years, I was promoted 1 year ago up a band. I was told all contracts are now temporary for 6 months then would become perminantAssistant: Have you discussed this with a manager or HR? Or with a lawyer?Customer: Sorry sent that too soon ! I then was given a second 6 month contract to sign saying there was a problem and so we had to do this re wages. I was taken in to the office yesterday and told by my new boss - who doesn't like me at all ! That she was NOT going to renew the contract ! The reasons she gave are petty - when I said everyone say I do a really good job she said yes there's no problem with my nursing and organising etc - so can she now refuse to make this contract perminant ?Assistant: What is your employment status? Are you an employee, freelancer, consultant or contractor? Do you belong to a union?Customer: employee at the same dept for 16 years and the last 1 years was the promotionAssistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: i have the RCN putting a case re bullying for me as its only me she's targeted.
