APPEAL (DISCIPLINE OR INVOLUNTARY TRANSFER)
APPLIES ONLY TO CLASSIFIED, PERMANENT EMPLOYEES
Disciplinary actions related to suspension, demotion or dismissal or an involuntary transfer may be appealed between the effective date of the action and the 10th working day after the effective date.
An appeal hearing is conducted by a lawyer appointed by the Personnel Commission.
An appeal may be filed by mail, fax or personal delivery. The form (see FORM) must be completely filled out and contain an employee's signature and (if designated) employee's designated representative's signature.
After submitting an appeal to a disciplinary action, an employee or his or her representative is entitled to inspect or receive a copy of any document or evidence related to the internal investigation leading to the employee's dismissal, involuntary demotion or suspension within 5 days after a request is made by the employee or his or her representative. An employee or his or her representative may request these documents from the agency's human resource staff.
