Misconduct Investigations and Pension Forfeiture

Thursday, March 12, 2020
8:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.


Cost: $130

Held at:
Watertown Police Department
552 Main Street
Watertown, MA


The employment consequences of misconduct investigations are well known-but what about the post-employment consequences of serious misconduct?

Misconduct Investigations and Pension Forfeiture explains those post-employment consequences for managers, investigators,union officers,and employees who want to know everything that is at stake during an internal investigation. Attendees will learn:

Ø What crimes and court activity trigger automatic forfeiture of a public employee's pension?
Ø What right do public employers have to recover "misappropriated funds" directly from an employee's pension deductions?
Ø What kind of off-the-job activity -and employer action about it- can lead to pension forfeiture?
Ø How can the Eighth Amendment's prohibition of "excessive fines" rescue an employee from pension loss? Why is it so difficult to get this relief from a pension forfeiture?
Ø What risks do successfully pensioned employees take by returning to part-time public service?
Ø Is there a higher risk of pension forfeiture for law enforcement employees?
Ø How can an employee lose his or her entitlement to employer payments towards health insurance during retirement even if the pension is not forfeit?

Your instructor is Attorney John Peter Hoerr, recently retired as a captain from over 30 years of service in municipal and university policing and a veteran of conducting internal investigations.

Haha why would you want to take this course unless you're a corrupt screwup ?
Maybe, just maybe IA types could get something out of it?

Perhaps in the event that you're a union official who has to defend corrupt screwups.
Why on earth would we want to defend corrupt screwups?

The training is useful for investigators when the allegations involve theft or crime. And tomorrow's corrupt screw up is today's allegedly corrupt screw up awaiting a decision, so, this training is useful for union officials too.

@Sooty: Your question is an eternal one, well beyond the bounds of this course.
