Fl

Lawyer's Assistant: Is the employment agreement "at will," union, full time or part time?

Hello,

Thank you for your post, however, I am unclear on what the complaint was concerning and why you are concerned about it being "reopened" with your employer. Can you provide more detail to put your question in context?

We were going through a divorce and in may I took some drugs at my work to try and do harm to myself. Also, His girlfriend had taken her daughter to the ER and I had someone look to see if they were in fact in the ER. They were. I did not look at anything in her record as far as why she was there. All I did see what an address and phone number that is it. My husband at the time decided to take the drugs back and I eas investigated at work. A week later they had asked me to either resign or be terminated. I decided to resign.We are now divorced since 9/6/17, and yesterday he calls corporate compliance at my old job and the police department ( he is still on my cell phone service and I checked the phone log).Can he do this? Try and reopen this investigation even if it was closed and no criminal charges were filed against me?

Thank you for your reply. You ex-husband can try whatever he chooses in this case, but he doesn't control the scenario, your former employer and any court that would get involved does. Unless he has new information that would clearly indicate new misconduct or a new criminal activity, it is highly unlikely that your former employer will take any action other than what they have already done. You don't say what your job was at the medical facility, but if you are a nurse, you could still face a report to the State licensing agency. That, I can't say.

As for criminal charges, if you are referring to the drugs, that could be an issue, but that would be with the police, not the former employer.

Please feel free to ask for clarification if needed. If none is needed, then if you could take a moment to leave a positive rating in the ratings box on this page of my efforts to provide you with information based on that which I have, then the Site will give me credit for assisting you today. Thank you

The drugs we're brought back to the hospital by my ex during the initial investigation at the hospital I worked at. The hospital did not file any criminal charges on the drugs or looking at medical records.
