  • Suspended - Investigation Proven Innocent Indiana

    I work in the Supported Living field. My client recently suffered a few injuries, and the entire house was suspended, except for the House Manager I believe. I was present for 1 of 3 injuries but, I dont think that is really all that relevant.

    We have all been suspended for a little over 3 weeks now. I have been called in and interviewed by the Detective leading the investigation. I was given a voice stress test, and ensured that it came back non-deceptive. Only 2 of us were given this test, and the last time I got an update, there were still some of the 5 needing to be interviewed.

    My question is, since I have been found innocent of doing anything, am I entitled to compensation for all of this time I have been suspended with no pay?

    Not under the law, no. (I'm assuming you are a nonexempt employee.) I don't disagree that it would be the right thing to do, but there is no law that is going to force the employer to do it.
    I don't respond to Private Messages unless the moderator specifically refers you to me for that purpose. Thank you.

      But you can file for unemployment for that time ...
