Disciplinary Determinations

Who May Appeal?

Under section 813 of the New York City Charter, the CSC can decide appeals from permanent civil servants who were subject to disciplinary penalties following proceedings held pursuant to section 75 of the Civil Service Law.

Who May Not Appeal?

Examples of employees who may not appeal a disciplinary penalty include:

  • Employees who are still in their probationary term following a permanent appointment, or individuals in a provisional position;
  • Employees who have chosen to use the disciplinary option provided by a collective bargaining agreement covering their title; and
  • Employees who waived their right to appeal pursuant to a settlement agreement.

NOTE: If you are unsure if you qualify to appeal to the CSC, you can contact your employing agency or your union representative.
