Clifford & Kenny represents municipalities before the Massachusetts Civil Service Commission in a wide range of cases, including employee disciplinary matters. Our attorneys also provide practical advice to municipalities regarding “best practices” for civil service appointments and promotions. This expertise has proven to be particularly helpful to our many municipal clients with police and fire departments that are governed by civil service law. Our aim is to help clients avoid the potential “pitfalls” in the hiring process in order to avoid costly litigation associated with bypass appeals.
