Employee not entitled to interest on back pay due upon reinstatement to his or her former position pursuant to court order


Employee not entitled to interest on back pay due upon reinstatement to his or her former position pursuant to court order
Miller v Nassau County Civ. Serv. Commn. 2011 NY Slip Op 05033, Appellate Division, Second Department

Roberta Miller sued the Nassau Civil Service Commission, seeking reinstatement to her former position and for back pay.

Miller appealed Supreme Court’s failure to award her predecision interest.*
 
The Appellate Division rejected her claim for “predecision interest,” noting that the award of back pay to in this instance is derived from Civil Service Law §77, "and that statute does not provide for predecision interest." Citing Matter of Bello v Roswell Park Cancer Inst., 5 NY2d 170.

§77, in pertinent part, provides that “Any officer or employee who is removed from a position in the service of the state or of any civil division thereof in violation of the provisions of this chapter, and who thereafter is restored to such position by order of the supreme court, shall be entitled to receive and shall receive from the state or such civil division, as the case may be, the salary or compensation which he would have been entitled by law to have received in such position but for such unlawful removal, from the date of such unlawful removal to the date of such restoration, less the amount of any unemployment insurance benefits he may have received during such period….”
