The State Personnel Board, an independent entity as designated by state Constitution, promulgates rules governing the state personnel system and reviews appeals by employees regarding any adverse action that affects an employee’s base pay, status, tenure or other rights to which an employee is entitled by law. The Board may also use its discretion to grant a hearing for actions that do not adversely affect pay, status or tenure and where the individual does not, otherwise, have a right to a hearing, appeal or review by law or rule.
