Did u receive my reply regarding more information.
Ok, let me try again. It was a big paragraph I sent. On Aug 28th I was working the front office which includes answer the phones, buzzing of the door for in and out people and watching the field to make sure nothing happens and is safe. Two minors were sent up to see the supervisor. Once they were seen my sup said they could stay up a few minutes before going back down for bed. One minor sitting next to me distracted me while the other minor crept to the front door. I noticed that minor was gone so I went down the hallway to check for about 3 secs upon returning other minor was also gone. obviously he buzzed the door open and ran out so both can escape. Both minors were apprehended the next morning. They want to discipline me with a possible suspension. I have a hearing Oct 4th. Suspension I can handle but I accepted a promotion and I don't want them to take that from me and is a possibility they may. That is my main concern. I want my promotion. I have 19 yrs in the dept and never had a discipline problem.
Yes. That is my concern. Do I have a case if the probation dept. takes away my promotion being that I already accepted the position already? Can they take away my promotion?
So you will reply on this page in a few minutes?
Ok Joseph, Thank you and I am printing your responses for my records. My union rep says I don't need a lawyer in this case however I have never gone through this before. My uncle who works with me and is also a supervisor informed me I should at least talk to a lawyer which I did with you. If it comes down to it can I call upon you for more advice? Even a representation for me if may come to that? A phone number?
