Citation: 4 N.J.A.R. 445
Decision Date: 1981
Agency: DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION
Synopsis: Petitioner, a speech correctionist, alleged that the local board of education had improperly transferred her to the position of teacher of the handicapped. She contended that she was entitled to credit for her Title I temporary employment which gave her greater seniority than her replacement who taught nonpublic school pupils. The administrative law judge assigned to the case concluded that petitioner's summer employment by its temporary nature could not count toward seniority in the category of speech correctionist prior to actually serving in that position. Her replacement's employment service in nonpublic as well as public schools was properly tenurable and he, therefore, held greater seniority as speech correctionist. Accordingly, petitioner's request for relief was denied. William F. Rupp, Esq., for petitioner (Lesemann & Rupp, attorneys) Mark G. Sullivan, Esq., for respondent and third-party petitioner (Sullivan & Sullivan, attorneys) Richard A. Friedman, Esq., for third-party respondent (Ruhlman and Butrym, attorneys)
