If you’re a public official, there are many situations you can face in which you would require a public employee lawyer. Whether you’ve been unlawfully terminated, been subjected to unfair labor practices, or been accused of bribery, you need to protect yourself and defend your rights.
If you are a public employee who has been terminated or disciplined, there are certain steps the government must comply with before any action is taken. For instance, a pre-determination hearing gives an employee the chance to make their case against a dispute before any final decision is made. In the case of unfair labor practices, such as discrimination based on race, gender, or disability, having the representation you need is vital in order to stand up for your rights.
