Terminated without cause and attestation question

Recommended Posts

I was recently "terminated without cause" from a job I had been at for almost 2 years.  In brief, it was due to patient complaints, but not to the degree that they actually terminated me "with" cause (i.e., they did not formally declare any "gross misconduct," "unprofessional behavior", or breach of contract).  The HR department told me that they will never discuss the details with any future employer --- they will only release the dates of employment.   Despite the vague reasons, I was definitely in agreement with leaving this position as I was not happy there.

My questions is this: when filling out the credentialing attestation questions for my next job, do I mark "yes" on the question about whether or not I have ever had my employment revoked or "involuntarily relinquished?"  The question doesn't specifically say, "have you ever been terminated with cause" from a job.  Here is the full question I am referring to:

"Have clinical privileges, membership, participation or employment...ever been placed on probation, suspended, restricted, revoked, voluntarily relinquished while under investigation, not renewed while under investigation, involuntarily relinquished, or is any such action pending or under review?"
