Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Businessinsider.com: “Workers at a Wisconsin hospital sought new jobs with higher pay — then the hospital sued to stop them from leaving”. Below is an excerpt from the article.
A Wisconsin court has granted a hospital's request to block seven healthcare workers from leaving to start new jobs at a competitor.
ThedaCare, a hospital in Appleton, Wisconsin, asked the court for a temporary restraining order to prevent the employees from accepting jobs at Ascension Northeast Wisconsin, a competitor hospital.
Mark J. McGinnis, a judge for the Outagamie County Circuit Court, granted ThedaCare the temporary restraining order on January 20. Attorneys representing both hospitals agreed to meet the morning of January 24 to see if they could come to another resolution.
The granted order states Ascension must either give back ThedaCare a radiology technician and a registered nurse out of the seven workers resigning, or cease the hiring of all seven workers until ThedaCare has hired replacements.
The Appleton Post-Crescent's Madeline Heim reported ThedaCare said in a complaint that Ascension had "poached" the hospital's workers as the region struggles amid a rise in COVID-19 cases. ThedaCare put non-urgent elective surgeries on hold last week due to both a record number of COVID-19 patients and a high absent rate of team members due to illness.
