Public employees are workers employed by the government, such as state, county, town, or village workers. Because the government must follow the United States Constitution, public employees have some additional workplace protections than private employees do. Further, many government workers in New York are covered by the Civil Service Laws which also provide workplace protections, such as the requirement that employees be given a hearing before termination. Famighetti & Weinick PLLC’s employment lawyers are experienced in termination hearings as well as claims against the government for violations of the First Amendment or Fourteenth Amendment.
