In public sector disciplinary investigations whether of a personnel nature, potential crime or both probably no subject has more myths and misunderstandings than the interplay between the Fifth Amendment, criminal law and personnel law that has evolved from the United States Supreme Court decision of Garrity v. New Jersey. In this webinar, we are going to explore the constitutional background of the topic, the facts of the controlling case law and the legal and practical implications for public sector employers, employees, their attorneys, and unions. We will cover so-called Garrity Warnings when they are used, when they are not needed and the implications for public sector misconduct investigations of employees.
