I recently obtained a job as a bank teller on Jan.31,2005. On court appearence date I was contacted by my employer and she notified me that some how she found out about this charges and propoced to tell me that the matter had to be solved as soon as posible or I would be at risk of lossing my job.

    I believe that your question was answered in another forum. Let me know if you have any other questions.

      disordely conduct

      My lawyer tells me that Disorderly Conduct is a violation not a crime.
      A 240.20 Violation is (disorderly conduct). My questions are: What does it means?, I'm being disorderly of what?, And if I take this plea what will my record show?. I also asked my lawyer if my case could get sealed and she replied yes but it would take a year to get sealed. My other question is, Why a year and not now?.
      Please explain.

        Crime

        You'll need to post your question on one of the criminal forums of this website. We can't help you as this forem is dedicated to employment law questions.

          One more question

          Is it right for my employer to tell me to hurry up with my court situation? or is it illegal for my employer to terminate me while the court waits for my decision to plea or continue to trial? Remember I am not guilty and I have never commited a crime. Shouldn't I have the right to dispute this charges and be given the time by my employer to do so?

            Termination

            While you may not be terminated for an arrest, your employer can terminate you for things such as excessive absenteeism (if you are having to schedule appointments with your lawyer, go to court, etc.). Also, this situation is being handled in such a way, as in the public eye, that it is causing the company harm, they may be able to go ahead with the termination. In those cases, you are not being terminated for an arrest, you would be terminated for behaviors caused by an arrest.

              court appearences

              As far as my court appearences I schedule them on my days off. As far as my performance at work nothing has changed I even out perform others. What other excuse I can think of is simply that my employer has already passed judgement of guilty in their minds with out been proven guilty.

                I understand what you are saying. However, I cannot think of anything else for you to do other than work with an attorney.
