KNOW YOUR CIVIL SERVICE APPEAL RIGHTS
As a jobseeker or current Commonwealth civil service employee for state and applicable covered local government/housing authority job opportunities, you have the right to appeal adverse civil service personnel action(s) to the State Civil Service Commission (Commission). Appeals must be filed within twenty (20) calendar days after you receive notice or become aware of the challenged personnel action(s). If a hearing is granted, the parties may present relevant evidence to include documents and witness testimony. After the evidence is presented and the record is closed, the State Civil Service Commissioners will review the full record and issue a decision, which is called an adjudication. Copies of the adjudication are provided to the parties. Please note the Commission does not independently conduct separate investigations into allegations raised in an appeal.
