Nervous!

I have a job interview for a Social Worker position in my state. My question is, my ex called CPS on me about 8 months ago, the case was closed right away but will this hurt me trying to actually work for CPS?

Get a copy of from Cps regarding the incident right away. Reach out to a non profit legal help. They are free..Discuss your past case. Before the interviews. Do it right away.

Unfortunately, it may. If you have small children I wouldn't recommend working for CPS. With CPS you never have time off. Is the position for social worker position, Conservatorship, or investigation?

Pray, Believe, and Stay focus. You never know. If you don't get the position, it was not meant for you. Something better is coming. You may be avoiding a nightmare. CPS is a tough job. Over worked, stressful.

Hello, Melissa, Having worked for state government about 10 years, I can say that during the hiring process, if you have a solid, logical, and truthful explanation for the incident, it should not be a barrier to getting hired, However, if they think you're covering up something, it may. Should it come up, ask them if they have the reports and evidence of what happened and what conclusions were gotten from their investigation. One important point, don't volunteer the info; let them bring it up. Should you get hired and it comes up during your probationary period, you can always tell them that they diidn't ask about it, but show a willingness to clarify the matter at that time. God bless and I hope this helps.

Hello Melissa,

I personally don't see how that would affect the outcome of you applying for a state government position being that you were not recorded and found guilty of any crime. Anybody can make an allegation against another that doesn't mean it holds merit.

I would think that if that allegation holds you back from getting this position would be in violation of some of your civil rights. However, the laws seem to be constantly changing these days, and seemingly with nothing to do with the Constitution and "The People's Rights" as it pertains to our changeable laws.
