Public Employee Hearings & Appeals

We represent state, county and local employees on an as-needed basis.  We recognize that public employees are often falsely accused of wrong doing, and we represent and defend employees in employer investigations.  Public employees may be entitled to hearings prior to the imposition of serious discipline or termination of their employment, depending on their status with the government agency employer. 

We can advise you about your rights and options when faced with a job threatening situation.  There may be deadlines that apply to your case that would waive your rights to challenge your employer’s attempt to discipline or terminate you, so it is important to consult with an attorney as soon as possible. 

We have many years of experience representing employees in administrative hearings before the California State Personnel Board, the Office of Administrative Hearings and local boards.  We also have significant experience representing employees in mediations and arbitrations.  We also advise and assist when employees are suffering from unlawful harassment, discrimination or retaliation in the workplace.
