Jeannette Dean Outstanding Member of the Week

For District 17 member Shirley Coble, there is no more outstanding SEANC member than her friend, mentor and stepmother, Jeannette “Jenny” Dean also of District 17.

“When I went to work for the state, one of the first things she told me to do was to join SEANC, and I did,” Coble said.

And, she said, she wasn’t the only person Dean recruited into SEANC during her more than 30 years at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro.

Learn how the NC OAH can protect your employee rights

10.29.2014

For state employees, one of the most important state agencies is one they hope they never need to use. But if they do, Director Judge Julian Mann II wants them to be confident in the impartiality of the North Carolina Office of Administrative Hearings.

“Is there just cause or not?” he said, explaining the basis on which all OAH determinations are made. “It’s just that simple.”

The OAH, which was established by the General Assembly in 1985, is an independent, quasi-judicial agency created to protect the due process rights of North Carolinians during interactions with state government, including state employees challenging employment decisions.
