Should I Have a Lawyer Defend Me Against Disciplinary Charges?

On Behalf of | Oct 2, 2014 | Uncategorized

In the event that you receive disciplinary charges at your job and are usually in the form of a notice of misconduct or incompetence you should absolutely contact legal representation in Westchester County. This is a serious matter that can affect not only your current position of employment but your future possibilities of getting another possible position of value and prestige. Disciplinary charges typically have to allege that you have engaged in some type of misconduct, it could be egregious or minor but going forward the potential or prospective employer is not going to know how serious those charges were. Whenever you are served with charges of misconduct or incompetence that sort of carries a stigma that can follow you through your career. It’s absolutely critical that you seek legal advice from an White Plains, NY attorney in order to determine how you should handle those charges. A lot of times some resolution is heard where some finding is not going to be placed in your personnel file or there is not going to be a resolution sort of public hearing, where these charges are going to be aired and known to others, I would highly recommend that you hire an attorney.
