The employee handbook, gives laid-off personnel first priority when vacancies open.
Anchorage, Alaska (PRWEB) January 01, 2014
Lynne Curry, Ph.D., SPHR (CEO of The Growth Company, Inc.) has over 30 years of experience in management consulting and frequently receives questions from clients regarding situations in the workplace. Today, Dr. Curry releases an article directed toward a laid-off contractor trying to gain employment.
Dr. Curry received an email from a client, “A large nonprofit in our state hired me three years ago as a contractor to help it grow from a small, financially stressed organization to a large, viable organization. They then offered me regular employment. Last October, the executive director RIF'd my position due to fiscal constraints, unfairly heaping all my duties onto another senior manager.”
“The employee handbook, which I wrote based on one borrowed from a previous employer, gives laid-off personnel first priority when vacancies open. Since October, I've applied for two jobs at this nonprofit. In my application letters, I reminded the selection committee of my previous work for the organization and the fact that I was laid off. I happen to know I was the only layoff.”
“Not only was I not hired for either of these positions, I was not even interviewed. Now, yet another position is available, and it's one for which I'm more than qualified. While I'm hopeful, I expect similar treatment and feel it is time to remind this clueless organization it needs to follow its personnel policies… How can I get a copy of the personnel manual without tipping off my strategy?”
