Successful Appeal for City of Bayonne

Successful Appeal for City of Bayonne

Anthony V. D’Elia and Joseph A. Garcia successfully represented the City of Bayonne in the Office of Administrative Law against an appeal of a Final Notice of Disciplinary Action terminating a firefighter’s employment due to a positive test result for a controlled dangerous substance.  The Honorable Jeffrey A. Gerson agreed with the City’s position that the Appellant exhibited classic symptoms of drug/alcohol use giving rise to a reasonable suspicion that he was under the influence leading to a fitness for duty exam, that his drug test results were positive for prohibited drugs and that termination was warranted.
