What are the Rights of Disqualified NYPD Candidates?

Tags: , , ,

DCAS is New York City’s personnel department. DCAS has delegated the task of investigating applicants to the NYPD. You can appeal a 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:

NOPD – Notice 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.

NOD – Notice of Disqualification. A disqualified candidate’s next appeal is to the Civil Service Commission.

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.

If you received a Notice of Proposed Disqualification (NOPD) in your email inbox you can appeal. I offer a free consultation if you receive a NYPD psychological, medical or character/background disqualification. Please call 516-248-3494 or email me at kevin@sheerinlaw.com to arrange for a free consultation. Two factors are crucial in your disqualification appeal. The first is that you follow the appeal process. The second is the facts of your case.

It is vital that you consult with someone experienced in this appeals process. If you attempt to appeal the NOPD on your own, you may miss opportunities to make crucial arguments that could turn the appeal in your favor.

As a civil service appeals attorney with more than 18 years of experience, I have helped many NYPD candidates win their appeal. I can help you too.
