No amount of pay is worth loosing your health

Last Aug I was working in healthcare finance as a Manager. I oversaw 27-30 employees 24/7 and was over 5 different areas. Along with all the normal responsibilities of managing staff I did insurance credentialing, wrote policies for all 5 areas, and was expected to be on call all the time, including when on vacation. The senior leader that I reported to was our CFO and was extremely difficult to work for. I was never once told good job or…

You are absolutely right. You can always replace money or a job somehow. Your health, however, is priceless.

What to do

Hi all, I am going to be up all night with my terminally ill kitty (this will be my last night with him). I have a job interview in the morning and I know I’m going to look tired and I’m hoping my brain won’t fail me!! I’m wondering if I should give my interviewer a quick explanation or not say anything at all and just hope she doesn’t notice?

I'm sorry about your cat. How did the interview go?

Should all jobs have a termination policy

Ok so my family member was offered a job ,and went to work for a couple days and got sick one day and couldn't call before her shift started because the ambulance came and got her. The job called and said she was terminated and to return all job items received. When she went to turn the items in she saw others who were also terminated for the same reason but was able to go to another site,so being that she wants to work she asked could she go to…

So I informed my job that my Grandfather had passed and I needed some days to attend the funeral. Instead they said that I would have to use my vacation time because it ws not an IMMEDIATE family member! I have not been with the commpany long enough to get PTO! Can they do that? My GRANDFATHER is DEAD! If this is how they conduct buisness, I find that I want no part in it! The only way I can get off is if I take a leave of absence and then I have…

One month ago, exactly, my lovely wife of 26 years passed in the night. But that's not all I lost. I also was a caregiver for her for almost 3 years Doing In Home Supportive Services. So when she died on June 23rd, I not only lost my wife but I also lost my job. It turns out IHSS does not pay into unemployment so I'm not entitled to collect unemployment. So I'm not only sad, but also broke and penniless. I'm having difficulties finding a job and…

During that time i managed to finish my degree in Technical Management so i thought i would have better chance after coming back that i would find employment because i have my degree but it has been a dog fight. I even took on 2 tempt jobs working in a warehouse to try and get my foot in the door, but i haven't had much luck with the tempt jobs…

I need help, please.

Like many others, I can't find a job. The bills are piling up, my husband has dementia and Parkinson's and I'm his sole caretaker. I can't collect unemployment because they consider me a transient worker ( I hopped from one assignment to another). So what's the next step? Do I qualify for State benefits? Where do I find info on that? Who do I ask? I've been sending resumes, filling out job applications,etc. I'm at a loss and I feel like crying…
