My Rights: Due Process

Public employees are entitled to a due process hearing before the employer makes a decision to terminate the employee. This is called a Loudermill hearing. 

A Loudermill hearing provides the employee with the following:

  • Notice of the charges against him/her
  • A summary of the evidence
  • The opportunity to respond

An employee cannot be required to attend a Loudermill hearing (compared to an investigatory meeting where an employee may be required to attend). 

PSEA advises any member called to a Loudermill hearing to contact his or her UniServ representative immediately.
