The Sanders Firm, P.C.: SDP and Employment

The Sanders Firm, P.C., which is located in New York City, offers services in connection with substantive due process (SDP) and employment when a government actor is involved. Any public employee of the government must be afforded due process as it relates to both the Fifth and Fourteenth Amendments to the United States Constitution. The Fifth Amendment states that no one may be “deprived of life, liberty or property without due process of law” and the Fourteenth Amendment guarantees that all people will be treated equally under the law.

Thus, before the government can act against anyone to in some way deprive them of their employment or to punish them in relationship to their employment, the government must ensure SDP, which affirms our right to liberty. If a government actor in any way compromises our liberty as outlined by the United States Constitution, then they have violated our civil rights.

Government Workers

As The Sanders Firm, P.C. has seen there are times when government employees are not protected and they suffer consequences, such as loss of employment, unfairly due to lack of SDP. If you have been terminated, been demoted, or been punished in another way and this action was done in a manner that in no way protected your rights, taking away your liberty as a worker, then you’ve suffered a wrong. When it comes to SDP and actions related to employment, those actions cannot be arbitrary, personnel must be treated equally, and workers must be able to exercise their rights under the law.

Changing the rules, in some way negating them, or using unfair practices to get around the law in order to force an employee to in some way waive their rights or to make that employee admit to a wrongdoing is against the law and a violation of your civil rights.
