The mission of the New York City Civil Service Commission is to provide a fair and efficient forum for the adjudication of appeals and to assure that the treatment of civil service applicants and employees is consistent with civil service laws and the rules and regulations of the City of New York.
The Civil Service Commission hears and decides appeals by applicants who have been disqualified for appointment to civil service positions.
The Commission also hears and decides appeals by City employees who were disciplined by their employing agency. The Commission may affirm, modify or reverse the decisions that are appealed to it.
Furthermore, the Commission may conduct reviews and studies of the administration of City personnel.
