The City Civil Service Commission ("CSC") is an independent agency authorized by section 813 of the New York City Charter, to hear and decide appeals from determinations made by other City agencies under the New York State Civil Service Law.
Please note that because of the global COVID-19 (novel coronavirus) pandemic and a concern for public health, the NYC Civil Service Commission continues to work remotely until further notice. As a result, in-person communication will not be available until further notice, and processing of items submitted by mail will be delayed. However, the Commission continues to process appeals and accept new appeal requests. If you have recently submitted an appeal by mail but have not received a response from the Commission, please resubmit the appeal via our online portal, by first selecting an appeal type. (See tabs at the top of this page).
All eligible lists which were originally scheduled to terminate between March 16, 2020 and December 31, 2020 will be extended by one year. Inquiries regarding the status of an eligible list can be e-mailed to the New York City Department of Citywide Administrative Services (DCAS) at: LMAcustomerserviceunit@dcas.nyc.gov.
A number of Executive Orders issued in March 2020 by Governor Cuomo and extended through early October 2020 impact the processing of Commission appeals. As a result, all deadlines set by the Commission have been suspended until further notice including all Commission filing deadlines stated in the Commission’s Acknowledgment of Appeal letter. There is no need to request an extension at this time. Please note, however, that the Commission is accepting electronic submissions and you may submit any paperwork in support of your appeal by email to email@example.com. Please include your Commission Case Number in the subject line of all emails.

The mission of the CSC is to be fair and impartial in deciding appeals and to assure that the treatment of civil service applicants and employees is consistent with civil service laws and the City's personnel rules.
In addition to hearing appeals from individuals, the CSC may conduct reviews and studies of personnel administration in City government.
