Hi, thanks for submitting your question today. My name is John. I have over 13 years of legal and consulting experience in this area. I’m happy to assist you with your question today. Please note that the website may ask you if you desire premium services, such as a phone call. I do not control these prompts, and you are not under any obligation to order premium services to get a full answer from me. If you do desire premium services, however, feel free to select that option. I will have an answer for you shortly, unless I require additional information. Please be patient while I may have to research some matters before providing a response.
If you really don't want the job any longer, the meeting can only harm you. If they have you on camera doing this, there's nothing you can say to make it less incriminating. So, I'd suggest at the very least that if you do attend the meeting you do not say very much because you may incriminate yourself. The other alternative is to either deny to attend (which probably results in your being terminated) or just resign. Resignation, given your statement that you plan to leave in any event, may be the best option.
No, the best they could do is file a complaint with the police, but it's doubtful the police would do anything about it.
I believe this answers your question. However, if you need clarification or have follow-up questions regarding this matter, I will be happy to continue our conversation – simply reply to this answer. If you are otherwise satisfied with my response, please leave a positive rating as it is the only way I am able to get credit for my answers (even though the website already charged you, it does not credit me with the answer unless and until you indicate you are satisfied with the answer). Thank you, ***** ***** wish you all the best with this matter.
Around a couple weeks...if you haven't heard from the police by then it's safe to assume they're just dropping the matter or the police will not pursue it.
Sounds suspicious. Are you sure it was the police? Being called right after you resign... I think you ought to be sure that it was the police calling (e.g., call them back or meet them at the police station). If it is the police I'd recommend paying the $50
