Paying online?

The City of Denver recently implemented a security enhancement to better protect our online payment processing system.  As a result of this enhancement, we are no longer able to accept payments from non-current browsers. If you are using an older browser version, please upgrade your browser to the most current version so that you can access the online payment service.

Career Service Hearing Office

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, download and complete the appeal form and submit to the Hearing Office within 14 calendar days of the notice of action being appealed (or within 30 calendar days of an alleged Whistleblower Ordinance retaliation).

Important: Complaints of discrimination, harassment, or retaliation may not be grieved using the process above because there is a separate process for these complaints. For more information, see Rule 16. You can also download the Official Career Service Workplace Grievance Form .


How to File a Grievance

If you have a work-related issue which was not taken to or resolved through the open door policy or  mediation, and you are a Career Service employee with a grievance as defined in  Dispute Resolution Rule 18,  you may prepare and complete all sections of the Official Career Service Workplace Grievance Form and file it with your Agency designee.
