The Career Service Review Board (CSRB) is a quasi-judicial body that administers the state's grievance and appeals process. The Board hears cases related to decisions about promotions, dismissals, demotions, suspensions, written reprimands, wages, salary, violations of personnel rules, issues concerning the equitable administration of benefits, reductions in force, and disputes concerning abandonment of position. The goal is to resolve grievances at the lowest possible managerial level. The Board has no jurisdiction over classification grievances, which are governed by Department of Human Resource Management.
The CSRB conducts pre-hearing conferences in an attempt to mediate many of the cases which come before them. When necessary they conduct jurisdictional, evidentiary, and appellate levels of adjudications as a means of resolving disputes
The CSRB conducts hearings as efficiently as possible using contracted hearing officers. The only ongoing salary costs are for the administrator and a secretary.
