FCSR Helps Career Service Appeals

Florida Career Service Appeals

State employees are governed by the General Labor regulations of the Florida Statutes.  An administrative process is available for eligible Career Service employees who wish to challenge their dismissal, suspension, demotion or transfer.

What is a Career Service Appeals Case?

This is when an employee feels they have been unjustly treated by their current or former employer and seek to appeal for a better more desirable outcome by taking their case to a judge.  In filing or representing yourself in a career service appeals case, it is important to first determine whether you are an employee who has the right to bring a career service appeal. The questions you might ask are:

Is Your Employer Being Fair to You?

  • Is this a Case for Unfair Discharge?
  • Should an Employee Be Disciplined? Is the discipline appropriate?
  • When Should the Discipline be Mitigated?
  • What About Disqualification from Employment Due to a DUI or other Misdemeanor?
  • Can an Employee Appeal?
  • What about back pay, interest, reinstatement, etc.

Find out the merits of a case by looking at precedential case law in Florida.

How FCSR helps Florida Career Service Appeals?

Our firm acquired the FLORIDA CAREER SERVICE REPORTER in 1996 to provide current and professional reporting and digesting of pertinent PUBLIC EMPLOYEES RELATIONS COMMISSION (PERC) orders.

Public Employees Relations Commission (PERC)

PERC employs eight hearing officers who are licensed attorneys with more than five years experience. The hearing officers hold hearings throughout the state on labor and employment disputes.
