Determination in Favor of Employer – Public Service Employee Termination

Firm Partners Mary M. Roach and Earl T. Redding recently defended and won an important case for Schoharie County addressing the status and rights of an employee in the public service who is terminated from employment

In Hanson v. Crandell, 2016 NY Slip Op 05604, Appellate Division, Third Department, the Appellate Court upheld the lower court’s decision determining that the Employer was within their rights to terminate the employee during the probationary period, and the Employer did not act in bad faith, there was no abuse of the Appointing Authority’s discretion, and the act was not arbitrary or capricious.
