Employment Law Appellate Court Opinion

by Oumano, Emily


AC44483 - Meriden v. AFSCME, Local 1016 (“The self-represented defendant, Patrick Gaynor, appeals from the judgment of the trial court denying his application to vacate an arbitration award rendered in favor of the plaintiff, the city of Meriden (city), in which a three member arbitration panel determined that the city had just cause to terminate his employment. On appeal, the defendant claims that the court erred (1) in applying the standard for vacating an arbitration award because the award allegedly was procured by corruption, fraud or undue means, (2) in determining that the arbitration procedure was fair and impartial and (3) by overlooking the panel's reliance on an investigation that was not fair and impartial. We affirm the judgment of the court.”)
