Public Employees

Public employees face a host of challenges in bringing lawsuits against their government employers not faced by private employees. Employees cannot recover punitive damages directly from the government, some claims require giving notice to the government within 6 months of the harm, some government entities require their employees to exhaust internal grievance procedures prior to suit. Further complicating matters, different laws and rules apply to different government entities. On the upside, government employees beyond their probationary period do have due process rights and can only be fired for cause.
