<p>Because these allegations could cost you or job, and even lead to criminal charges (even if not true) you need to deal with this very carefully.</p><p> </p><p>Generally, you should get an attorney as soon as possible, who can assist you with answering any questions, as well as protecting you from charges being filed. A good attorney would meet with you and go with you to any questioning. Further, he or she will find out ahead of time what the allegations are, and help you prove you were not involved in abuse.</p><p> </p><p>This is not the kind of problem you can deal with yourself. Anything you say during questioning by the employer or other officials or police can and will be used against you.

Consulting and retaining an attorney to help you protect your rights is wise. You should do this before you have answered questions that may later be used to make a case against you - either in terminating you from employment or possibly in criminal charges. There is a lot at stake for you.

 

Be diligent and don't delay. I would recommend consulting either lawyers.com or attorneypages.com to help you find the right attorney.
