If you feel you have an appeal related to civil service law, The Sanders Firm, P.C. will work with you to file and represent you throughout that appeal. Civil service law is a highly specialized field that requires experience as well as well as knowledge.
The CSC hears and decides appeals of three types of agency determinations:
• §50 Candidate Disqualifications
• §76 Adverse Discipline
• §72 Involuntary Medical Leave aka Medical Separations
The process of filing an appeal includes submitting written documentation that includes all necessary paperwork in relationship to the appeal. Thus, if you are appealing candidate disqualifications, adverse discipline or involuntary medical leave, you must include the reports associated with those decisions. These documents are reviewed as is all evidence submitted by the appellant.
At its own discretion, the CSC may decide to schedule an evidentiary hearing. Such a hearing is designed to give the appellant a chance to explain their appeal and offer facts in opposition to the prior decision that was made. In the hearing, those who originally made the decision appealed may be on-hand to explain and defend their determination.
If an evidentiary hearing is scheduled, the appellant will be notified by mail. After the hearing and a review of the arguments, documents, and the record of the appeal, the CSC will issue a written decision. There is no specific time for rendering such a decision, but the CSC will do so as soon as it is practically possible. Both parties are informed of their decision by mail. In its decision, the CSC may modify, affirm, reverse or remand the original determination.
