Question: Should section be amended to allow appeals by all classified employees of any suspension to the Civil Service Commission regardless of the length of the suspension, instead of suspensions of more than ten days?

Proposed Language:

§ 121     Appeal to Civil Service Commission

Any person in the classified service of the City who is suspended, reduced in rank, or dismissed from the service of the City may appeal from such decision to the Civil Service Commission within ten days from and after the date of the suspension, reduction, or dismissal. In such event the director of the department involved, upon notice from the Commission of such appeal, shall forthwith transmit to the Commission a copy of the charges and proceedings thereunder. The Commission shall hear such appeal within ten days from and after the filing of the same with the Commission, and may affirm, disaffirm or modify the judgment of the director, and the judgment of the Commission in the matter shall be final.
