California was the first state to enact a Public Safety Officers Procedural Bill of Rights Act (POBR)—and AALRR was one of the first law firms to handle police disciplinary and employment matters in connection to POBR.
Our attorneys have over two decades of experience in handling all aspects of employee discipline, including drafting Skelly notices, preparing for and presenting clients’ cases in dismissal and other disciplinary hearings, representing clients in legal proceedings and appeals of disciplinary decisions, and representing clients in employment discrimination lawsuits. We also represent many clients that operate with a personnel commission.
AALRR works closely with clients to help reduce liability and limit potential litigation. We regularly provide in-service training workshops that address appropriate documentation procedures for public employees, how to respond to and avoid discrimination claims, and how to handle other matters and issues covered in the Fire Fighters and Peace Officers Bill of Rights.
