About Us

The City University of New York (CUNY) Civil Service Commission is a municipal Civil Service Commission composed of three members appointed by the CUNY Board of Trustees. The Commission has the authority to hear and determine complaints alleging violations of Laws or Regulations including, but not limited to, the New York State Civil Service Laws and The Rules and Regulations of the CUNY Classified Civil Service. Members of the Commission accept their responsibilities as a public service and receive no compensation. They are ultimately responsible for the administration of the University’s classified service personnel operations. The Commission has the obligation to operate under the above cited laws and regulations, and in accordance with the New York State Constitution. In addition, the Commission may review grievances brought by employees who are not subject to collective bargain agreements. The CUNY Civil Service Commission is bound by its own rules, which have the full force and effect of law. The freedom of its members from external pressures or interference in carrying out the provisions of the rules and the law is central to accomplishing the mission of the Commission.
