Employment Law Questions? Ask an Employment Lawyer.
Hello I am a licensed attorney here to help you with your question, please review my response and do not hesitate to ask for clarification
Can you please explain further?
You were called to testify by whom?
You want to file a complaint to whom?
Who would you be testifying for?
As I was getting ready to file a complaint toward a supervisor leadership. I was notified by my co-worker that he got charges of behaving / conducts unbecoming as a county employee. The speed of the hearing and a quick(?) assembly of the witness is truely remarkable.
You should file your complaint to the HR or administration, if you feel the matter needs to be addressed,
in terms of being a character reference, if you were Court ordered to testify, you would have to tell the truth, so that should not be an issue.
If asked about your supervisor you can testify to the truth, but only if asked specifically.
Also, if you file the complaint,
and the employer tries to bring charges against you,
you can claim retaliation for your letter, and testimony
Is this before the hearing of the commity or during. And when I should be presenting my complaint. Before ; during or after?
You should consider sending the complaint before.
Ps. this hearing is within the facility. As history of this facility no outsider have been able invited nor challeged.
In terms of the hearing if this is not Court ordered, you do not have to appear, unless forced by the employer,
if a Court forces you, then you have to appear
