Garrity v. New Jersey, 385 U.S. 493 (1967). Public employees cannot be required to waive their constitutional rights against self-incrimination when ordered by their employers to make potentially incriminating statements. To ensure protection, employees should state in writing: "I am submitting or making this statement under threat of discharge or suspension for insubordination and do not waive any of my constitutional rights, including my Fifth and Fourteenth Amendment Rights, against self-incrimination."
