Frustrated!!

I’ve been pretty frustrated!! The owner of the office where I work asks me to clock out when a patient cancels, is treating me like a contractor instead of an employee! It’s PT so I understand the no benefits but essentially I feel like I’m a great asset to the business and not getting the treatment I deserve. My revenue is awesome, EVERY patient loves me.. Not one patient has said anything negative with or without me in the room. I don’t understand. I feel like I’m receiving the short end of the stick while the practice flourishes. I’m also the only hygienist. Ready to find another job :-/

I would make a list of what you feel would be fair treatment and what you would expect to have if you are to stay and have a sit down. A boss that is unwilling to see your value, is probably not a boss you will be happy with long term.
I would not be happy in a practice that expected me to clock out when patients no show or cancel, I always find something to keep me busy during that time and thus am still an asset to the practice even if I am not producing for an hour.

Contact a labor law attorney and find out what the law is for your state. I don’t think you can be clocked out when a pt doesn’t show. If you are clocked out then I sure wouldn’t be helping out! You may need to discuss being paid off production. I’d first talk to a labor law attorney and find out your options before talking to your boss. Let us know what happens!!

I actually stopped because I learned I wasn’t being paid!! And I get hourly and a percentage of production. I know that doesn’t sound bad but if I have 2 no shows and only work 3 days a week I’m not even hitting 1000 pay check! Get less than that and I have a mortgage that’s more than that a month.
