NYPD Disqualified Candidate Rights

DCAS is New York City’s personnel department. DCAS has delegated the task of investigating applicants to the NYPD. You can appeal your NYPD disqualification. Applicants who are disqualified from appointment may challenge an agency’s findings on the grounds that such findings were made in bad faith or were arbitrary and capricious.

There are three potential appeals:

  1. NOPDNotice of Proposed Disqualification. Based on NYS Civil Service Law 50(4) a hiring agency must give a disqualified candidate an opportunity to provide explanations for a proposed disqualification in writing.
  2. NODNotice of Disqualification. A disqualified candidate can appeal a disqualification to the Civil Service Commission.
  3.  If the disqualification is upheld by the Civil Service Commission the candidate can file an Article 78 lawsuit in the New York State Supreme Court in the County concerned.

Chances of Reversing a NYPD Psychological Disqualification

If you are currently disqualified, you have two chances to succeed. Your first chance may occur if you wind up having a positive outcome after a re-interview at the NYPD Psychological Disqualification NOPD phase. It is extremely important that you have a knowledgeable, experienced attorney and seasoned mental health professionals to help, guide and prepare you for any re-interview.

If you are unsuccessful, you do have a second chance to win with an appeal to the New York City – Civil Service Commission, who holds hearings and could rule that your disqualification was improper. Candidates have had their NYPD Psychological Disqualification reversed at the NOPD re-interview. Additionally, candidates have had their disqualifications reversed after hearings at the Civil Service Commission. However, your  disqualification will not be reversed unless you take action.

NYPD Psychological Disqualification Process – What to Expect

What should you expect from the NYPD psychological testing process?

The NYPD will give you a written exam consisting of hundreds of questions.  After the exam is scored you will be called to meet with a NYPD Psychological staff member for an oral psychological interview.

You may be asked questions about your answers given on the written exam and you will be asked to explain your answers.

You will also be asked questions about your education, work, driving and arrest history (if any). You may also be asked about your history with Psychotherapy or any medicines you may have taken in the past, as well as your family history, personal relationships and all other relevant topics.

You will also need to explain any issues that may have arisen regarding any of the above topic areas.

In addition, you will have to provide authorizations so the NYPD Psychologist can get documentation from your schools or jobs, and you MUST provide these authorizations in order to complete the process.

You may receive notice that you have been placed on psychological review.  This review can take some time as other members of the NYPD team review your file.

Thereafter, you may receive a Notice of Proposed Disqualification or NOPD stating that you have 30 days to appeal.

SOCIAL MEDIA MATTERS!

In a world that revolves around technology, you must be aware of EVERYTHING you say, do or post on social media. Before putting anything out there, you should ask yourself if you are fine with ANYONE seeing and/or reading your content.
