Were You Illegally Fired from your Government Job?
If you are a municipal or state employee who has been illegally terminated from your job, there are very specific guidelines you must follow to recover damages. Because of government immunity from civil lawsuits, you will not be taking a usual course of action in civil court. Your case must progress through internal administrative processes, similar to a lawsuit, but somewhat different in terms of procedures.

Heideman, McKay, Heugly & Olsen lawyers have extensive experience helping government workers successfully navigate the process of administrative hearings and Career Service Review Boards that government workers are subject to when filing a wrongful termination claim.
Municipal liability cases require diligence and determination. Government entities have found ways to protect themselves from discrimination and wrongful termination claims. One way they protect themselves from municipal liability is to impose strict timelines for filing and very specific requirements for presenting evidence. If you miss a deadline, your case will be thrown out permanently. Our attorneys understand the guidelines and procedures.
