Are there time limits for filing an appeal to a Civil Service Commission?
Yes. It is very important that you file an appeal to the Civil Service Commission within the required time period.
- Bypass appeals – filed sixty (60) days from notice of bypass
- Disciplinary appeals – ten (10) days after the disciplinary action was taken
The limitations period for filing an appeal can also depend on when the appellant received notice of the challenged action. For example, the Commission has allowed appeals to proceed that were filed after the limitations period ended if the appellant can show that he did not know, and had no reasonable way to know, of the challenged action within the limitations period.
