Honesty Issues – Stealing, etc – Generally
Honesty-related problems crop up regularly in employment cases. Sometimes we can diffuse them and sometimes not. Depending on the unique facts of the case, allegations of honesty problems might actually strengthen your case. It makes me dig deeper, looking for a good lawsuit, when I see my opponent making obviously bogus pretextual allegations of resume fraud or time card fraud or some clearly ridiculous “theft” accusation. It’s sometimes a cover-up for a Wrongful Termination or other form of illegal Retaliation.
Here are some key questions if you’ve been accused of stealing or dishonesty. These are things which you need to be prepared to talk about with a lawyer. Lawyers will be looking for some sign that you are being falsely accused or unjustly punished in Retaliation for something, because the retaliation might give you legal rights. Lawyers will also be looking for signs that people are being treated unequally based on their gender, pregnancy, race, age, disability, religion, national origin, etc., which may give you rights under the Discrimination laws:
When you call lawyers, they will appreciate it if you are prepared to discuss the questions I listed above.
NOTE: If your register has been too short too often, there’s probably not much I can do for you.
