VICTORY! CNA Reinstated with Backpay at Methodist Medical Center!

November 17, 2012

As is the case in many workplaces, clocking a co-worker in or out is a serious offense. It was at Methodist Medical Center in Oak Ridge when a supervisor accused a CNA of clocking out her co-worker. Both CNA’s were terminated and the Union filed a grievance. An independent arbitrator heard all the testimony and evidence and in the end ruled that the Hospital did “not satisfy its burden of proof by a preponderance of the evidence.” Methodist Medical Center was ordered “to reinstate the Grievant to her former job without loss of seniority and to make her whole all time and benefits lost as a result of her termination.”
