Denial under fire — This is when the employer surprises you with some form of alleged bad conduct, and you say “I didn’t do it” — But you really did it.
This could be somewhat troublesome for you, because your employer may have rules about honesty that they will accuse you of violating — I can manage this stuff very often. But the employer may still attack you as if you violated some kind of big policy related to “ethics” or something, due to your Denial Under Fire — Well, we can come up with many other examples of where the employer lied about any number of things, which would be the same thing, right?
But Denial Under Fire is BS because we all deny alleged wrongdoing when we are shocked and suddenly confronted.
You may have merely been scared of getting fired, even though your intentions were good.
If you can keep your wits about you, then shut up and tell them you want to talk to your lawyer before you give a statement — If they won’t let you have that chance, I will make them look bad within the system — Do what I say.
