Three workers at the Administration for Children's Services are reportedly fighting to get their jobs back after being fired for mishandling the Nixzmary Brown case.
A representative from the city's social service workers union tells the New York Post that the employees were "terminated" about a month ago. The workers are appealing and are waiting for a decision from an independent arbitrator.
Three other caseworkers and supervisors who faced disciplinary hearings after Brown's death are still waiting to hear if they will be disciplined.
The union rep also tells the paper that conditions at ACS remain unacceptable, despite promises of reform in the wake of Nixzmary Brown's death.
Brown, 7, was found dead in her Bedford-Stuyvesant home in January. She was allegedly beaten to death by her stepfather, Cesar Rodriguez. Both Rodriguez and the girl's mother, Nixzaliz Santiago, have been charged in the case.
