Annual Disclosure Appeal Decisions

On September 20, 2012, the Board ruled that tax conciliators in the Department of Finance are required to file financial disclosure reports.  Link to Board order #3 (in PDF).  

On August 28, 2012, the Board held that the 14-day period in which an agency must render its decision commences 14 days after the date of the filing of the Notice of Appeal, i.e, the date the written statements are due, and that the agency must wait until expiration of this period before rendering its decision on a financial disclosure appeal.  Link to Board order #2 (in PDF).

 On April 19, 2012, the Board found that an agency’s failure to set forth any reasons for its denial of an employee’s appeal is a failure to respond within the required time frame and granted the employees’ appeals on default.  Link to Board order #1 (in PDF). 

The Board’s order finding that claims specialists in the Office of the Comptroller were required to file financial disclosure reports was upheld in State Supreme Court.  Link to Board order and the Court Decision (in PDF).
