Public sector employers, including municipalities, police and fire departments, and school districts, face a variety of additional employment issues not applicable to the private sector, such as:
- Constitutional due process, privacy, and free speech protections
- Civil service rules
- Special job security protections such as teacher tenure
- Different collective bargaining laws
With the decline in private sector unionization, public sector employment has become the most active sphere for union representation and collective bargaining.
