Disciplining Public Safety Employees

When a municipality takes disciplinary action against police and fire personnel, it must navigate a web of procedural and substantive requirements, including those imposed by federal and state law, collective bargaining agreements, employment policies, and police and fire commission rules. Knowing these requirements and how they interact with one another is crucial to properly imposing discipline in a way that ensures fairness and limits a municipality’s liability. Join us as we explain the various legal considerations when disciplining public safety employees, and offer practical tips for obtaining the best possible outcome in such situations.
