Types of NYC Civil Service Disqualifications

There are 3 main types of disqualifications for civil service jobs – medical, psychological and character.

Medical

Reason: Fail the medical examination.

There are many reasons why candidates can be medically disqualified. Any physical disability that would make it difficult to perform the duties of the position applied for would be grounds for disqualification. This would include minor problems with hearing or vision as well as more major issues involving the respiratory or cardiovascular systems.

Psychological

Reason: Fail the written or oral psychological examination.

There are two components to the psychological exam – written and oral. You can fail either one of these portions and be disqualified. If you receive a psychological disqualification you will need a second opinion from another psychologist. This doctor will need to interview you, review the records from the department you applied to, and then write a report giving their professional opinion of your fitness to serve as a civil servant.

Character

Reason: Fail the background check.

On the DCAS website they set forth the following list of concerning factors that may disqualify a candidate from the NYPD:

The following are factors which would ordinarily be cause for disqualification:

  • Conviction of an offense which indicates lack of good moral character or disposition towards violence or disorder, or which is punishable by one or more years imprisonment.
  • Repeated convictions of an offense which indicates disrespect for the law.
  • Discharge from employment as a result of poor behavior or inability to adjust to discipline.
  • Dishonorable discharge from the United States Military.
  • Conviction of an offense for Domestic Violence Misdemeanors.
  • A Felony.
  • Statutory Disqualification (disqualified by law).

Factors that affect your NYPD Psychological Disqualification

If a candidate had an Individual Education Plan (IEP) in school, some NYPD psychologists will consider that a reason for disqualification. The NYPD psychologist will ask you to sign an authorization to get your school records. When the records are received they will review them and determine if the issues you had in school will effect your candidacy.

If a candidate took ADHD medicine while in school, this may also be considered as a reason for NYPD disqualification. Again, the NYPD psychologist will request an authorization to obtain your records from school, and review them to determine if you should be disqualified on that basis.

You can appeal your disqualification by getting an independent psychologist to help you. They will explain that what happened back in school is not your current condition or state. Often candidates have outgrown the need for medicines, or their condition has not followed them into adulthood.

Of course, if you do not take action, the disqualification will become final and will effect your ability to get any other civil service jobs.

NYPD Psychological Appeal – 1 Chance to Choose an Expert & Obtain NYPD Records

Law Office of Kevin P. Sheerin

With more than 18 years of experience as a NYPD disqualification appeals lawyer I have helped many disqualified candidates who have received either a Notice of Proposed Disqualification (NOPD) or a final Notice of Disqualification (NOD) for psychological reasons from the NYPD.

The NOPD letter provides the candidate with an opportunity to select and hire their own psychological expert and have the NYPD psychological file sent to that expert for review and preparation of a rebuttal report. However, in order for the NYPD psychological file to be released, the disqualified candidate MUST first respond to the NOPD.

It is crucial, as a disqualified candidate, that you select a psychologist familiar with the appeals process. ONCE YOU SELECT AN EXPERT TO ASSIST YOU IN YOUR APPEAL YOU WILL MOST LIKELY BE UNABLE TO SWITCH EXPERTS LATER.

Also, selecting a psychologist that the candidate formerly had counselling session with is a poor choice.

I have extensive experience regarding how to appeal a NYPD Disqualification. Over the years I have helped many clients win their appeal. I can help you too.

To succeed in an appeal it is best to hire both legal and medical experts to assist you.  Depending on your level of interest in this job, the investment may pay off over the long run if your appeal is successful.
