Labor & Employment – Public Employees – Termination – Personal Misconduct – Mishandled Investigation – Disproportionate Discipline (access required)

Benson v. Hughes After petitioner told the truth about the actions of three of her co-workers, she was subjected to an improperly conducted investigation based on statements by inmates. Petitioner’s only proven misconduct – one instance of using a curse-word where inmates could hear her and one instance of using a curse-word in a meeting with her superior – were insufficient to warrant her termination, especially in light of the much more lenient treatment of other correctional officers’ infractions.
