Understanding the rights of city or county employees requires a thorough review of the rules and regulations governing such employment. Often we find that we have to review the city charters and ordinance provisions governing such employment, as well as the collective bargaining agreements and personnel rules applicable to a specific employment situation.
If you are a public employee in Northeast Florida, you should be aware of your rights to challenge disciplinary action or present grievances through either the Civil Service Board system or the grievance and arbitration provisions of the Collective Bargaining Agreement applicable to your position.
Delegal & Poindexter has represented city and county employees in these matters in civil service board hearings, arbitrations, and in state and federal courts.
