Has anyone had this happen? I got a call from the police in the town where the facility I USED to work at is located. They are talking to all the employees (all the employees? all the direct care employees? not sure what kind of employees constitute "all") who worked that day. I've never been considered a suspect in any crime, and when I was told I was a suspect and read my Miranda Rights, I was taken aback. I decided not to talk to the police until after I'd talked to a lawyer. I've talked to a couple. Also have a call into someone I know who used to be a cop, to get their perspective. I don't want to be unhelpful, but I also don't want to say something that could, in some unforeseeable and unimaginable way, be used against me.
This was in an assisted living residence. One of the lawyers I talked to said investigations are common at ALRs.
Has this happened to you and what did you do? Did your employer stand by you or were you "on your own"? (I don't expect anything from my former employer, but it does make me wonder how employers treat employees who are suspected of a crime.)
