Civil Service Commission Overturns Suspension

The Civil Service Commission voted not to adopt the recommended decision of a DALA (Division of Administrative Law Appeals) Magistrate. The Commission found that due to the course of events, including having the female employee’s desk moved into the men’s locker room, among other things, that sufficient animus existed on the part of the supervisor against the employee, and against this background, neither the supervisor nor the Appointing Authority displayed an “unprejudiced mind, exercised common sense, or followed the rule of the law” in its treatment of the Appellant/ employee in regard to the suspension without pay the employee received, and granted her appeal.
