Opinion asking whether the Union County supervisor is considered an elected official per S.C. Code § 4-9-30(7)? Does the supervisor fall within the scope of the county’s personnel policy? Is the county council itself authorized to hire and fire a county employee? Is county council authorized to reinstate an employee fired by the supervisor? And if county council does have the authority to fire a county employee or have an employee reinstated that is fired by the supervisor, what type of majority would county council have to have to do so?

Requested by: Sammy G. Diamaduros, Esquire, Union County Attorney
