Superintendent Hill Discusses “At-Will” Employees

Wyoming State Superintendent of Public Instruction Cindy Hill has certainly ruffled a few feathers with her request to make all new hires at the Wyoming Department of Education “At-Will” employees.

Superintendent Hill explains in her own words why she feels new hires need to be At-Will.

Hill says that she continues to work on the issue with Governor Matt Mead.

Most state employees are classified as permanent employees, meaning that there must be documented disciplinary infractions prior to termination.

At-Will employees can be fired at any time, without a given reason. Since Hill took office last January, there have been more than forty employees who have left the Wyoming Department of Education, which employs 146 people.
