Pre-Disciplinary Process: Basics For Skelly

In their command performance recorded for the 2020 CalPELRA* conference, Jeff Sloan and plaintiffs’ lawyer extraordinaire Alison Berry Wilkinson engaged in a fast-paced, fun, and (relatively) collegial back-and-forth covering all the steps of the Skelly process that permanent public employees are entitled to before the employer decides to implement serious discipline. The presentation includes a brief mock Skelly scenario showing how it’s done.  By the end of the program, viewers will know how to prepare for and facilitate a Skelly meeting; how to avoid procedural gaffes; and how to structure the Skelly determination.  This CalPELRA seminar received great reviews, so please enjoy and feel free to contact Jeff with any questions you might have! See presentation slides here, supplementary materials here, and a Skelly scenario here.
