Denver State Personnel Board Appeals Lawyers
Fighting For Your Employment With The State Of Colorado
As a state-certified employee with the state of Colorado, you are entitled to due process before the state takes either corrective action or disciplinary action against you. Corrective action may be taken for most job performance-related issues; whereas, in general, disciplinary action may be taken for more serious types of misconduct. Whether you are the subject of a corrective or a disciplinary action, you need the assistance of an experienced lawyer to fight for your employment. At Pearson & Paris, P.C., we have more than 50 years of combined legal experience. Our litigation team is experienced in aggressively litigating before the state personnel board to fight for your state employment.
The Grievance Process
If the state has issued a corrective action, we will assist you in the grievance process, contesting the issuance of the corrective action and the corrective action plan that was implemented in your case. It is important to contest any corrective action that is unfair or sets you up for failure and ultimate discipline.
The State Personnel Board
The State Personnel Board makes rules governing the state personnel system and hears appeals by employees in the state personnel system. Our representation starts with attending the Rule 6-10 meeting with you in an effort to minimize the type of discipline imposed. Where appropriate, we will file an appeal of an adverse disciplinary action with the State Personnel Board and set the matter for a hearing before an administrative law judge. Our focus throughout these proceedings remains on keeping your employment record with the state of Colorado intact.
