Casey Voelkl, a Greece Police Officer, is taking legal action against the Town of Greece, Greece Police Department, Supervisor Bill Reilich, and Deputy Supervisor Michelle Marini for alleged retaliation following former Chief Drew Forsythe’s DWAI crash. Shortly after the crash, Voelkl alleges that he was demoted four civil service steps and had his base pay reduced by 32%, with other wages and benefits cut without due process under federal and State law. Seeking $2,000,000 for “loss of past wages, pensions contributions, lost wages as a result of being deprived of promotions, future wages, as well as pain and suffering,” Voelkl is represented by Maureen Bass, a Partner and member of the firm’s Employment Practice Group. Bass represents individuals and private sector employers in a wide range of employment law matters, from wage and hour class action lawsuits to litigation and administrative proceedings under Title VII, the Americans with Disabilities Act, Age Discrimination in Employment Act, and New York Human Rights Law.
