MUST APPEAL NYPD PSYCH NOPD OR HAVE CASE DISMISSED LATER

There is some confusion among candidates about whether they must appeal and NYPD psych NOPD. (Notice of Proposed Disqualification)

To clarify: you must appeal an NYPD NOPD psychological disqualification at the NOPD stage or your appeal will be dismissed.

The Psychological Assessment section file may only be reviewed by a licensed health care professional. Your only opportunity to have your Psychological Services Assessment section file reviewed during this administrative process will be at this time.

IF YOU DO NOT SUBMIT ADDITIONAL INFORMATION BY THESE DEADLINES, THIS PRELIMINARY DETERMINATION OF PSYCHOLOGICAL UNSUITABILITY WILL BECOME FINAL. YOU WILL NOT HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY TO HAVE YOUR FILE REVIEWED BY A LICENCED HEALTH CARE PROFESSIONAL DURING THIS ADMINISTRATIVE PROCESS AND YOU WILL RECEIVE NOTIFICATION THAT YOU HAVE BEEN DISQUALIFIED.

If you try to begin your appeal, as many people would revise you at the NOD stage the NYPD Legal Bureau will move to dismiss your appeal for failing to exhaust your administrative remedies and failing to have your psychological file sent to your Mental Health Professional (MHP) at the NOPD stage. Your appeal may be dismissed.

Civil service job disqualification NYPD (psych disqualification) and FDNY (medical disqualification)

When you receive a civil service job disqualification such as NYPD psych disqualification or/and FDNY medical disqualification it’s crucial you mean with the civil service law attorney to discuss your case.

An attorney who is knowledgeable in the area will be able to describe the appeal process and its three steps. The attorney will be able to get your background history and the complete story of your application process any interaction you may have had with the hiring agencies interviewers and discuss the best way to approach an appeal.

This is best done in person. The spent time to review documents to discuss your life, your education, your work history and any jobs you may have had. Also good to discuss what happened during the application process whether it be background or medical or psychological. After getting all the facts then you can decide if you would like to act.

It is always best to communicate, get all the facts, discuss the strategy and decide if you like to take action. Sometimes deferring to another test or looking at other jobs may be the best advice.

I’ve been helping civil service job candidates for 16 years in filing appeals and also telling them when their appeals may not be successful.
