  • Working at the sheriff offices -- I can't live with a convicted felon

    I started working at the sheriff office in october. My husband was in their jail for driving with suspended license. I seldom visited him, but while he was locked up I had his child. I went to see him so he could see his child. I got hired by the sheriff office and all of a sudden, they have a problem with me being married to him tell me I couldn't live with him and can't have contact with him-- my husband. they have a rule saying you can't live with a convicted felon, which i wasn't aware of because of a crime he commited as a juvenile. I is not written in the policy manual, they have division head who brothers and sons get locked up every other week at their jail. on the application they have a spot for spousal information and I didn't not hide anything. They had all the information to check info on my husband. From day one i was constently harassed about my husband, people being told to keep "tabs" on me.... they have recorded lines and i knew that. My husband and I are separated right now but gets alone very well. He had our kids, I called on the phone to check up on them... the conversation ended in "I LOVE YOU - I LOVE YOU TOO" , I got called in the office and they had a CD with me talking on the phone telling my husband that. we were not living together at the time and based on that phone call they came up with I was living with him. People their knew more about my husband than I did.. .... Not one time my job performance came up. Everything been about my husband..... another incident came up when I filled out my post cert form. I had worked for another sheriff office and didn't list it on my application because I was working under a program that got me the job under a volunteer service. I put that service down on my app. thinking it would cover that job. they fired me for that saying I lied on my application. during the process of termination, the man gave me the option to resign or get terminated.... I said i didn't do anything wrong so I am not resigning.... he terminated me and brought up the thing about my husband again..... what does this have to do with my job performance? I was on probation.... from oct - feb they have been tring to find something to fire me for...... can they do this...they also told me they can fire me for any reason under probation.

    You may want to first file a complaint with the chief of the dept (or have us do so if you wish) . The heads of the dept's are required to investigate these kinds of problems and normally will do so--file directly with him or her and do so in writing...if that does not work, let us know.
