The first thing people usually worry about after they’ve been arrested is how they’re going to explain the situation to their family. The second is how they’re going to explain it to their boss. You already have enough on your plate, getting fired is the last thing you need.

Dealing With Your Boss
Most people try to hide their recent arrest from their boss. This is usually a mistake. Sooner or later your boss will find out about the situation. When all is said and done it’s best that the news comes from you.
Pick a time that’s not busy to meet with your boss and explain the situation. You don’t have to give them the nitty-gritty details of our arrest, but you should at least let them know that there is a court case against you, that you’re out on bail, and that there will be times when you have to take a little time off I order to make your court appearances.
The most important thing to tell your boss is if there are restrictions connected to your bail that will make it difficult to do your work. Two such restrictions would be not being able to leave town/county and having to be home by a certain time.
Telling your boss that you’ve been arrested and are currently out on bail is never fun, but most bosses understand that things happen and will be willing to work with you on the situation. The most important thing is to be transparent about the situation and to talk to them as soon as possible.
