    I am a registered nurse who does private homecare.The patient is the boss and he has a nurse manager and head nurse. I was told I have to lose a few hours (anywhere from 2-4 a month) because he is going out of the house and won't be back until 2hrs into my shift. I am told that I must accept working the 6 hrs and losing the pay for the other two hours. I make 40 dollars an hour. This can add up over time and may last up to a year. Am I being unresonable to want to come in the same hours I have been working for 9 years?

    I find that totally unreasonable. Why cant u start when he gets back and work the extra 2 hours after your normal shift ends, even if he pays you at a normal rate and not over-time, i think thats being reasonable!, talk to him, thats thousands of dollars your losing and hes the only one benifiting from it.

    destiny i think that you are not being unreasonable and he should pay you for your hours of not being there.

    maybe instead of complaining on the internet about your boss you should talk to him in person???? if you've done that, then take him to court!

    I think you should find another case that offers the hours you want. If you don't want to lose the hours then I wouldn't work the case and I would find another.
