After Morgan carried Chavers over from the McNesby run Sheriff's Office and named Chavers his Chief Deputy, a personality conflict started brewing between the two. And that resulted in Morgan demoting Chavers. And that was so embarrassing for Chavers that he really developed a serious grudge against Morgan.
And now Chavers is using the election to get his revenge on Morgan.
What say you?

Vikingwoman wrote:It absolutely applies in the private sector.Go take a gander at the NLRB'S website of all the private sector employers charged w/ section 7 violations. From McDonalds to Walmart to Krispy Kreme donuts. Many people are not familiar w/ this law and their rights under it but the NLRB is a powerful federal agency that enforces that right. You can even go on Facebook and criticize your employer and terms and conditions at work and be fully protected.If they fire you the NLRB makes them reinstate you w/ back pay and all benefits. They are no joke and totally different from the state labor board who don't do much of anything.

As to job rights, the Chief Deputy position at a Sheriff's office comes under the definitions and rules regarding Executive Exempt employees which are significantly different than cover other employees, either private or public. He was removed from that position but remained a mid-level supervisor until that was no longer tenable either.
