As an White Plains Employment Lawyer, I have a number of municipal employees who come to me with disciplinary problems. Depending upon the status of that employee, the employee may not be fired without notice, without charges, or without a hearing. If the employee has permanent competitive civil service status, he can’t just be fired on the spot because there is a process that has to be followed.
There are some municipal employees who may not have protected civil service status either because they are serving a probationary term, or they are non competitive employees and have not had their status ripen into permanent status. For those employees, it is conceivable that they could be fired on the spot.
Are you a municipal employee who was fired without charge? Contact experienced White Plains Employment Lawyer Jane Gould to fight for you.
