Hearing Office

The Career Service Hearing Office utilizes a hybrid workplace. We continue to receive all electronic appeals and mediation requests. If you have questions, please email us at csahearings@denvergov.org or call us at (720) 913-5703.

The Career Service Hearing Office provides a fair and neutral appeal process for City employees in accordance with the Career Service Rules. Procedures and requirements for appealing the results of formal grievances, as well as employer actions that can be appealed directly to the Hearing Office, are set out in Rule 19 Appeals.(PDF, 132KB)

If you choose to file an appeal, complete the appeal form on our website within 14 calendar days of the notice of action being appealed (or 30 calendar days of an alleged Whistleblower Ordinance retaliation) by clicking the "File an Appeal" button below.

We Are Currently Updating Our Website. If you are unable to find something in our new website, please contact us and we will be happy to assist at  csahearings@denvergov.org
