Hello: My name is ***** ***** I am an attorney. If Human Resources is doing an investigation, then you should have a right to be heard and provide your side of the story as well as provide any evidence to support your position. Did you approach HR about your side of the story yet?

They did speak to me on 12/4 and when they spoke to me they asked me what the percieger to do pm service I explained that we bring the unit in when a pm is due we go through the whole unit and grease everything then they asked if I ever had a unit in the shop for a pm service and got busy and maybe put the sticker on the unit and forgot to do the pm service on the unit and I replied no I go through the whole unit then I put the sticker on and if it needs repair we do the repair and then put the sticker on then they said we have issues with a unit that I did on 10/17 that I waited to do the brakes on 11/23 but at the time of the pm if it needed brakes I would have done them then they said we are suspending you for 3 days pending investigation of falsifying document and if we find that you are not at fault we will pay you for those three days and like I stated I tried to reach out to them on Friday and no response so I figured that my 3day suspension was over but went to work this morning and was told that I have to wait for Human Resources to say I can go back to work what should I do now because I feel I am being accused of doing something I never did in my life
Employment Lawyer: DamienJD, Attorney replied 8 months ago

Employment Lawyer: DamienJD, Attorney replied 8 months ago

Thanks for the clarification because I thought you were allowed back at work pending the investigation. But you are saying that you are still suspended pending the investigation. Are they paying you during this time period?

Customer reply replied 8 months ago
Not until they finish they will let meknow
Employment Lawyer: DamienJD, Attorney replied 8 months ago

I see. So, you are suspended without pay for now pending an investigation. You provided your side of the story and are now waiting.

Do you have any further questions to ask me?
