NYPD Disqualification Appeal

If you received a Notice of Proposed Disqualification (NOPD) in your email inbox you can appeal. If you receive a NYPD psychological disqualification, medical disqualification or character/background disqualification, I offer a free consultation. Please call 516-248-0040 or email me at kevin@sheerinlaw.com to arrange for your free consultation. Two factors are crucial in your disqualification appeal. The first is following the appeal process. The second is the facts of your case.

It is vital that you consult with someone experienced in this type of appeals process. Appealing the NOPD on your own may cause you to miss out on the opportunity 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.

If you have questions about your NYPD Disqualification and would like to schedule a free consultation at my Mineola office, please do not hesitate to call me at 516 248 0040 to discuss your appeal.

NYPD Disqualification Appeals

Matter of State Div. of Human Rights on Complaint of Granelle, 70 N.Y.2d 100, 103, 510 N.E.2d 799 (1987).

In this case, Mr. Granelle was disqualified from employment as a NYPD Police Officer because of an asymptomatic back condition known as spondylolisthesis. The State Division of Human Rights found in his favor, but the Appellate Division dismissed his complaint. But the Court of Appeals reversed and held for Mr. Granelle.

The Division conducted an investigation and had a hearing before an Administrative Law Judge. During the hearing Mr. Granelle testified about his employment history, which consisted mostly of heavy lifting, such as working in the construction industry, laborer, and as a truck driver. But he stated that he never had any back problems that interfered with his jobs. He also introduced evidence from his personal physician who testified that this condition is present in about 10% of the general population and that this condition would not limit Mr. Granelle. The City used the testimony of an appeals examiner that did not conduct an examination of Mr. Granelle but opined that there was a great likelihood of low back disability in the future, but gave no reliable statics regarding this. Mr. Granelle was examined by an independent orthopedist who reported that his strength was normal.

The standard of review for the Court of Appeals is “when a rational basis for the conclusion adopted by the Commissioner is found, the judicial function is exhausted and is limited to determining whether the Commissioner’s finding of employment discrimination in this case is supported by substantial evidence in the record.” The court found that Mr. Granelle indeed suffers from a disability within the law. Under the statute there is an ”individualized standard“ such that the employer must demonstrate that the disability is such as would ”prevent the complainant from performing in a reasonable manner the activities involved in the job or occupation sought“, failing which, the disability may not be the basis for rejecting the applicant. The court reasoned that the City failed to show evidence that Granelle isn’t able to presently perform the tasks needed. The City argued that there was a high possibility that he would be unable to perform the needed tasks in the future but there was no reliable statistics. Ultimately the court held, “employment may not be denied based on speculation and mere possibilities, especially when such determination is premised solely on the fact of an applicant’s inclusion in a class of persons with a particular disability rather than upon an individualized assessment of the specific individual.”

NYPD Psych Disqualification NOPD Interview

If you are psychologically disqualified from the NYPD Police Officer title you will receive a Notice of Proposed Disqualification by email. You have thirty days to appeal this NOPD. You should hire an attorney and designate a psychologist to help you file a rebuttal report which will be sent to the NYPD Candidate Assessment Division.

After your psychologist’s report is reviewed you may receive an email to come in for another interview with an NYPD psychologist. During the interview the psychologist will review the reports prepared by the original NYPD psychologist and your expert. You can expect to be questioned on any inconsistencies between the report and the problem areas found by the first NYPD doctor who chose to disqualify you.

This re-interview is an important step in the appeal process.

I am a successful civil service attorney with 18  years of experience.  I have many clients currently working as Police Officers because I helped them win their disqualification appeal. I can help you too.
