I have had an informal settlement conference and have been offered a disciplinary order that is unreasonable or unacceptable to me. What are my options and remedies?
You can negotiate the terms of the order or reject it, in which case it is likely that the agency will file formal charges against you through the State Office of Administrative Hearings (SOAH). If you are unwilling to accept the offer, then representation is probably a wise idea. Successful negotiation requires an understanding of the agency’s case. This is best handled by competent legal counsel. Furthermore, to successfully combat the agency in a formal administrative proceeding requires technical knowledge of the SOAH rules, the Administrative Procedures Act, and evidentiary rules and procedure. This is best handled by an attorney experienced in litigation, negotiation, and administrative procedure.
