Career Service Hearing Office


The Career Service Hearing Office is physically closed. We continue to receive all appeals and mediations using the links, above. If you have questions, e-mail us at 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.   
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 gray "FILE APPEAL" button, above.
