can a skelly hearing be scheduled 2 days after receiving notice?

I received notice of proposed dismissal on June 2, 2015 and am told my skelly hearing is this afternoon, June 4th. Is this legal? shouldn't I get at least a few days to prepare?

You should receive all information the public entity relied upon in reaching its proposed decision and enough time to work with that info and to request additional info if what you received was incomplete. Immediately put request for additional time (perhaps three weeks) in writing, being sure to sign and date the request. Keep a copy for yourself AT HOME, not at work. State you need time to review and prepare response and that denial of request is denial of due process. Good luck!
