If you are an at will employee, you can be fired for any good cause reason as a city employee and your only recourse is filing an appeal through your city internal grievance process. You must file your appeal in accordance with the city internal appeal process. Then once you do, if you lose, you can seek to appeal that decision to court if you can prove it was contrary to law or based on fraudulent information. But you must exhaust your appeal through the employer's process first.
