Administrative law — Employment termination — State Personnel and Pensions Article
The State Personnel and Pensions (“SPP”) Article establishes a detailed process by which non-temporary state employees in Maryland’s Executive Branch may be disciplined for misconduct. This process includes several layers of internal and external
review (we are one), and it affords employees several procedural rights. In this appeal, Appellant, Glen K. Doty (“Appellant”), a skilled service employee, claims that the Office of the Comptroller of Maryland (the “Comptroller” or “the Agency”) failed to follow the SPP Article when it terminated his employment at the Agency’s Human Resources Office (“HR”).
