| FAVORABLE PA COMMONWEALTH COURT RULING SECURED FOR SCHOOL DISTRICT CLIENT

MBM REPRESENTATION LED TO FAVORABLE INTERPRETATION OF PUBLIC SCHOOL CODE REGARDING CRIMINAL BACKGROUND CHECKS FOR CONSTRUCTION EMPLOYEES. 


When a local union brought suit against several school districts alleging a violation of the School Code, MBM’s School Law team stepped in. While the School Code only mandates criminal background checks for construction contractor employees that have direct contact with students, our clients opted for stricter policies that mandated checks for all construction employees – regardless of their contact with students. The ruling brought down by the PA Commonwealth Court reinforced our clients’ right to impose more stringent policies that must be followed by construction employees.

| MBM SECURES FAVORABLE LABOR ARBITRATION DECISION IN TEACHER TERMINATION CASE

MBM EDUCATION LAW ATTORNEYS SUCCESSFULLY ESTABLISHED THAT THE TEACHER’S COMMUNICATIONS WITH A STUDENT WERE “IMMORAL.”


MBM serves as solicitor for a School District that terminated a teacher’s employment contract for the charge of “immorality.” The charge was based on social media communications with a student that involved inappropriate behavior in the school and classroom. The teacher then filed a grievance and the case went to arbitration. The arbitrator found that our client established just cause and was not arbitrary or capricious in its decision to terminate the teacher’s employment. It is important to note that in this case, our clients had a social media policy in place, which directs the staff to maintain professional, moral and ethical relationships with the students in all forms of digital communication.
