Just to update those of you that gave me best wishes from my last discussion. Fact is work have still not communicated with me in regards to allegation except that at one point i will need to make a statement. I have still reitterated that i have done nothing wrong, but their response was they need to investigate allegation thoroughly. Reminded them of fact that we have had a justice system in our country for 1000 years that says" you are innocent until proven guilty" . However i am using the unpaid time off to look at my career options as friends and family would prefer me not go and work in sort of care place i was working as so dangerous and stressful at times. my Dr has put me on "happy pills" at minute to reduce my stress levels and i am doing my utmost to stay positive and remain optimistic despite everything. Just feels that at age of 35 i dont have much going for me at minute in regards to moving forwards. GOD IS GOOD I KNOW FOR A FACT, MAYBE I NEED THIS TIME AS A TIME TO CHANGE AND LOOK AT MY BIGGER PICTURE.

What were the specific allegation(s) for which you are being "investigated" (sic. hunted)?

You cannot make a statement, until you are informed of it/them! You should be given adequate time to compose your formal response. Asking you for a statement without informing you of the specific allocations you should strongly resist responding beyond "what is it I am alleged to have done", I have done nothing wrong.

Good luck brother. Everyone should keep looking for better jobs… someday we might just find one…maybe?!?!?! (Not holding my breathe)

This sounds like pure craziness. I hope you are able to find a new and better job real soon. I know I sure wouldn't want to go back to work there even if things did get fully resolved. I'm glad you have your faith. Best of luck. Heidi

I would be snapping angry if I were you..might even consider contacting the state attorney general…NOT telling you why you are under investigation is not appropriate under any circumstances…and seriously I would be looking for another job…I mean even if you are "cleared" and allowed to go back to work…would you really want to???..

Have you thought about taking classes either at a community college or on-line to get a degree in something that really interests you? Right now my 41 year old daughter is working on-line to get her Masters Degree in Education by taking one class per month and before the end of the year, she will have her degree so that her earnings will go up, her status at work will go up. She just started in January, 2015. The only thing I don't like is that she doesn't have the time to visit with me as we live about two hours away from each other and with her working, taking care of husband and two sons, going to school, and tutoring, she barely has time to breathe, However, I am behind her 200% and I am her biggest fan and no matter what I think of her as my best friend.

My step daughter kind of went though something like that. She helped one of her team members with a difficult customer and they decided to take what they thought was appropriate action and give them the refund. The team member was fired and she was demoted pending an investigation. In the end, they had to offer the other girl her job back because they were wrong to fire her....but who would want to go back to that? Geeze.

All said to say that let the investigation play out. If you didn't do anything wrong, then it will come to light. If it was unknowing, then they should just write you up, not discipline you. I tell you, this is one reason I like working for myself. If I have to answer to the boss, I just talk to myself. LOL

Andy, at 35, you have a whole lifetime to move forward. My late husband had to start over in his forties and we survived and you will too. That doesn't mean God will make it easy for you. It's great that your family is being so supportive. It's crazy they still haven't told you what you did and I think they're taking way too long. Keep hanging in there. Take care.
