Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I went into work and was just cussing in general not at residents just complaining to myself but residents were in area this was before jan 18th should I take attorney in to speak with my employer asking for meeting on thurs of this week
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
2nd shift nurse reported me but never verbally abused any residents is it still considered abuse if they were sitting in common area and heard me
Lawyer: Roger, Attorney replied 2 years ago

Ok. Thanks.

If this was not a harassment/threat situation, then you'd be looking at a civil issue -- and not a criminal one. That said, the statute of limitations for the employer to take action can be years.....so you're well within the timeframe that something could be done.

So, you're likely best served to consult a lawyer and discuss what occurred -- at the least -- and decide whether or not th lawyer should accompany you to the meeting or not.

what im asking is how long they have to file a report and can they come after me for verbal charges if they haven't talked to me personally and just have statements from aides and second shift nurse
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
would appreciate a response
Lawyer: Roger, Attorney replied 2 years ago

If your employer has policies and procedures about reporting issues and dealing with grievances, that would set your parameters for how long the employer would have to take action.

Also, the employer would have the ability to pursue this internally with a statement from others.....unless the policies and procedures provide something else.

Thus, much of how this will occur and unfold depends on what the company policies require.
