Civil Service Commission overturns agency’s disqualification of applicant for examination
Matter of City of New York v New York City Civ. Serv. Commn., 2015 NY Slip Op 03036
The New York City Civil Service Commission, after a hearing, reversed a determination by the City’s Department of Citywide Administrative Services that an applicant for the examination for “Principal Administrative Associate” did not meet the minimum qualifications for admission to the examination.
The Appellate Division, sustaining the Commission’s determination, found that the Commission's decision was supported by substantial evidence. The court said that the evidence presented by the applicant for the examination at the hearing before the Commission demonstrated that she possessed the requisite supervisory and/or administrative experience to qualify for admission to the examination for appointment to the position.
