What Can State Employees Do If They Receive A Disciplinary Action?
Most disciplinary actions that are filed against permanent New York state employees must commence through Civil Service Law Section 75. Section 75 allows employees who have received a disciplinary action to go before a disciplinary hearing. At the hearing, employees can defend their actions and refute their employers’ allegations. Additionally, employees can obtain access to the evidence before the hearing, call witnesses and challenge witnesses and evidence presented by employers.
Navigating the legal processes and preparing for a disciplinary action hearing is a complex process that most laypeople are not ready to handle without help. New York state also has significant legal resources that they will use during your hearing. Because of this disadvantage, it is vital that you choose representation who can create the most robust defense possible and present your side of the story. Attorney Kevin Luibrand will use his decades of experience in the courtroom to prepare an effective strategy for your hearing.
