School Liability For Injury For Not Firing Bad Teachers By Michael Joseph on April 09, 2012

Our New York City personal injury lawyers were shocked when arbitrators made it impossible to fire teachers who display immoral behavior which is shocking. Mayor Bloomberg cited numerous cases where the arbitrators refused to allow the City of New York to fire teachers who subjected children to immoral and sexually explicit behavior.

These activities were clear red flags which the City tried to act upon by firing the teachers. The arbitrator told the City that they cannot fire teachers who obviously should be fire for inappropriate behavior. Ironically, the City might now be liable when these teachers ultimately do harm a child because they were clearly on notice that these teachers were a problem.
