I have just been placed on indefinate paid Administrative Leave as VP Asia Pacific International Sales pending an investigation as to business in China and possible wrong doing by our organizaion. What action should I seek today?
State/Country relating to question: Illinois
Nothing so far.
Good afternoon,I'm sorry to hear of the situation.Being put on paid leave pending an investigation doe snot give you any specific legal cause of action.However, based on the seriousness of the situation, and your position in the company, it might be a good idea for you to retain local Employment Law counsel to prepare for anything that might come down the pike in the near future as the investigation continues. You will be in a much better position to deal with investigative requests if you have your attorney up to speed.
If you have additional questions, please keep in mind that I do not know what you already know or don't know, or with what you need help, unless you tell me. Please consider that I am answering the question or question that is posed in your posting based upon my reading of your post and sometimes misunderstandings can occur. If I did not respond directly to the issue you thought you were asking about, please reply with the specific question you wanted answered.
Thank you much. Can you recommend a good local employment law counsel with me being based in Cook county in the western suburbs of Chicago?
What city is your job located in?
