Know Your Rights

There is no such thing as an “unofficial” or “informal” meeting!

DO NOT sign or agree to anything. DO NOT make or write a statement.

REMAIN SILENT….

Remember: Prior to answering questions or making a statement to an administrator, law enforcement, DCF or DOE investigator.

Ask: What is the purpose of the meeting? What possible consequences may occur as a result of the meeting?

State: “I am willing to cooperate with the investigation; however, I am requesting that the investigation be rescheduled at a time when I can have a representative of my choice present.”

Contact the OCEA office for guidance – The OCEA President and/or staff will write the grievance on behalf of our members
