The following forms are those that are required to file an appeal, a petition for hearing or a Whistleblower claim with the State Personnel Board. Additionally, for complainants who do not have an attorney and are "self representing", there are samples of forms that are commononly used in the appeal process. These may also serve as useful reference for attorneys who have not previously represented before the Board.

To file an appeal or a petition for hearing, fill out the Consolidated Appeal & Dispute Form following the Instructions for filling out the form.   The appeal form is fillable and printable.  Consult the checklist for filing appeals to make sure your appeal is complete.   Appeal forms may NOT be edited or modified in any manner.  

If you wish to file a Whistleblower complaint, fill out the Whistleblower Complaint form and file it with your appeal form.

To file a grievance (if your state agency does not have its own grievance form), you may use the Board's grievance form which is fillable. You must submit the grievance form to your appropriate supervisor. The Board does not review  grievances, only appeals of the final grievance decision of the appointing authority for the agency.



If you do not have an attorney during the discretionary review process, and you are "self representing" you should use the information sheet provided on this site.  Details regarding the required content of information sheets are in Board Rule 8-45. Similarly, if you do not have an attorney and are required to file a prehearing statement, you should use the prehearing statement form provided on this site. Details regarding prehearing statements are in Board Rule 8-54.

Original appeal forms and subsequent documents must be filed with the State Personnel Board and copies provided at the same time to the Respondent or the legal representative for the Respondent. Failure to do so may be grounds for denial or dismissal of the appeal. See Board Rule 8-38(B) and Board Rule 8-40.
