Mike Egan Terminated ‘Without Cause’ as Norwalk City Manager

By Brian Hews

The Norwalk City Council made it official at last night’s city council meeting terminating Mike Egan as City Manager “without cause.”

Termination with cause and without cause are the two basic types of involuntary termination in a workplace. To fire an employee with cause, the action must result from either policy or ethics code misconduct or significantly poor performance.

In the absence of these reasons, a firing is generally regarded as termination without cause.

Egan will be replaced by Jim Parker , Director of Transportation, on an interim basis according to Norwalk Mayor Luigi Vernola.

The City sent out a press release today writing, “At the City Council meeting on September 5, 2017, the City Council voted to terminate its employment relationship with City Manager Michael J. Egan without cause, effective immediately.”

“We thank Mr. Egan for six years of service to the City of Norwalk and wish him well in his future endeavors.”

“The City Council looks forward to beginning the search process for the next City Manager in short order. “Because this is a personnel matter, we will have no additional comments at this time.”

“On September 5, 2017, the City Council also appointed Jim Parker, Director of Transportation, as Interim City Manager. Mr. Parker will work with the City’s administrative team and the City’s employees to continue to serve our residents and businesses during this time of transition.”
