Employment Discrimination 3rd Party Recovery
Myself and 2 more employees are employed at a hospital as employees that recieve full time benefits. However, we are constantly told we are considered outside Vendors (like an outsourced agency.) Which by doing so really interferes with our work. We provide all that we can upfront with all information they request & they have full access too every file. Then they come back and say it is not sufficient and need more, as we are ''vendors'' to them but everything is in writing of what is documented & more info is provided than a one lined report that they receive from the real outside agencies. Everything is much more accessible to the Financial Director, as we are internal and every case we work is noted and kept internally. We are hired internal employees, do we have rights to demand more pay if we are considered Vendors,(like and outside billing/collection agency) Is that legal to be hired employees and treated as Vendors? Doesn't that infringe on some labor law,licensing, discrimination ? Please help. P.s.
We have asked for the last 2 years for them to make a decision of what or ''who'' we are to no avail to this date.
