Civil Service Commission Resources

SPBR's resource manual, 'Guidelines for Conducting Employee Hearings,' was designed to provide civil service commissioners and city law directors with assistance in conducting hearings and applying Ohio civil service law to specific employee situations.

The manual covers the hearing process from the initial receipt of an employee's appeal through possible appeal of a CSC's decision to a reviewing court. It includes sections dealing with jurisdiction, practices and procedures, disciplinary and non-disciplinary hearings, and judicial review under Ohio Revised Code Chapter 2506., as well as quick reference lists, selected sections of the Revised Code and Ohio Administrative Code, and a reference copy of a Revised Code Section 124.34 Order.
