Some of the most frequent questions I receive:

Should I appeal my Civil Service job disqualification?

Well, consider what happens to your chances of being a law enforcement officer if you let your disqualification stand.

Most law enforcement agencies are required to conduct an investigation for every exam you take. But how authentic will it be?

Possibly not so in depth because the person doing the investigation or testing will have in the back of their mind that you were already disqualified by another agency.  They may try to piggyback on that decision.

So your chances of ever being in law enforcement are severely damaged by your failure to take action to fight your disqualification.

By fighting your disqualification the situation never gets worse – it can only get better. That is, the disqualification could get overturned.

Agencies will even use the fact that you did not appeal your disqualification against you and say that you did not even appeal last time you were disqualified, which they imply shows that the disqualification was proper.  They do not say that you didn’t appeal because you didn’t have the funds, time, energy, were a student, were living out of the country or were in the armed forces.  They only state that you were disqualified and did not appeal.

Law Office of Kevin P. SheerinI am a NYPD disqualification appeals lawyer with more than 18 years of experience. I have been assisting disqualified NYPD candidates who have received either a Notice of Proposed Disqualification for psychological reasons or a Final Notice of Disqualification for psychological reasons from the NYPD.

On the Notice of Proposed Disqualification letter the candidate is given an opportunity to select an expert and have the NYPD psychological file sent to that expert for review and the preparation of a rebuttal report.  If the disqualified candidate does not respond to the Notice of Proposed Disqualification the NYPD psychological file will NOT be released.

It is crucial that the disqualified candidate select a psychologist familiar with the appeals process to assist them.  ONCE YOU SELECT AN EXPERT TO ASSIST YOU IN YOUR APPEAL YOU WILL MOST LIKELY NOT BE ABLE TO CHANGE YOUR CHOICE LATER.

Also selecting a psychologist that the candidate formerly had counselling session with is a poor choice.

If you receive a Notice of Proposed Disqualification or Notice of Disqualification from the NYPD Psychological Service Division please contact me at 516 248 0040 to discuss your options.

Law Office of Kevin P. SheerinIf you are in the hiring process for a New York City Civil Service job and would like to find out when your eligible list expires:

Dial 212-669-1357
Press 2
Enter your social security number

The DCAS help line will tell you when your list was established and when it will expire. The expiration date is usually 4 years after the list was established or promulgated.

If you received a NYPD Disqualification letter you would probably need one (1) year to process your appeal, and if you succeed in your disqualification appeal, to appointed to the NYPD. Therefore, you should write to your investigator and request that action be taken on your file to allow yourself sufficient time to appeal if you are disqualified.

The disappointment and frustration of receiving a disqualification letter from NYPD, FDNY, DSNY or New York City Department of Corrections can be addressed by taking action rather than giving up. One of the great parts of New York City civil service jobs is the New York City Civil Service Commission.  The process of appeals has improved dramatically over the 18 years I have been helping disqualified candidates appeal their disqualifications.

I have created this video to explain the civil service job disqualification appeal process.

Visit my website http://www.sheerinlaw.com  for more information about the disqualification appeal process.

There is a sharply increasing percentage of candidates appealing their NYPD NOPD psychological disqualification who are succeeding at a second interview.

Law Office of Kevin P. Sheerin

Before you can get a second interview you must appeal.

It’s good to get the facts before you act.

I am available for a phone consultation, a zoom conference or FaceTime. We can discuss the facts of your history, the appeal process for NOPD appeals (“step one”), including what occurred in the oral psychological interview, tips and tactics and how to avoid the traps in a second interview, the process for filing an appeal with the New York City Civil Service Commission if you do not succeed at step one, how to present the best case to get a hearing before the commission and how to succeed at a hearing before the commission.

CURRENT CLIENT REVIEWS AFTER SECOND INTERVIEW:

March 24, 2020 – “Kevin helped me get my disqualification reversed after a second interview.” – Anne L.

March 11, 2020 – “I was disqualified and got a second interview and prepared with Kevin Sheerin in his office and my disqualification was reversed.” – Jeff J.

August, 2020 – “My experience with Mr. Sheerin was great from start to finish. I contacted Mr. Sheerin when I first got my NOPD, and he got to work right away. With his help I was able to thoroughly prepare for my second interview with the NYPD, which was a success.” – Anthony R.

Disqualified NYPD Police Officer candidates who receive a letter called a “Notice of Proposed Disqualification” (NOPD) and who were disqualified based on psychological issues must file an appeal within 30 days! Failure to file a NOPD appeal and designate an expert to receive your file and prepare a rebuttal appeal report will result in having your case dismissed by the NYC Civil Service Commission. You MUST file your appeal within 30 days of receiving the NOPD. If you file an appeal AFTER receiving a Notice of Disqualification (NOD) from the NYPD Psychological Services Section your case will be dismissed.

A police officer must first file an appeal with the NYC Civil Service Commission before filing an Article 78 under the doctrine of “exhaustion of remedies.”

A hiring agency may disqualify a candidate up to three years after hiring the candidate.  The three year limit does not apply if fraud was used in the application process.

In the instant case the Appellate Division, First Department dismissed the Article 78 because the candidate failed to appeal to the New York City Civil Service Commission before filing the Article 78 lawsuit.

Law Office of Kevin P. SheerinIf you received a Notice of Proposed Disqualification in your email inbox you can appeal.  I offer a free consultation if you receive an NYPD psychological disqualification, medical disqualification or character/background disqualification.  Please call 516-248-3494 or email me at kevin@sheerinlaw.com to arrange for a free consultation.  Two factors are crucial in your disqualification appeal.  The first is following the appeal process.  The second is the facts of your case.

It is vital that you consult with someone experienced in this appeals process.  Appealing the Notice of Proposed Disqualification (NOPD) on your own can cause you to miss important opportunities to make crucial arguments that could turn the appeal in your favor.

What can be expected in the NYPD psych testing process?

The NYPD will give you a written exam consisting of hundreds of questions.  After the examination is scored you will be called to meet with a NYPD Psychological staff member for an oral psychological interview.

You may be asked questions about your answers given on the written exam and you will be asked to explain your answers.

Law Office of Kevin P. Sheerin

You will be asked questions about:

Education History
Work History
Driving History
Arrest History (if any)
Psychotherapy or medicines taken
Family and Relationships
Other relevant topics

You will be asked to explain any issues that arise in the above topic areas.

You may be asked to provide authorizations for the Psychologist to get documents from schools or jobs and you will have to provide to them to complete the process.

You may receive notice that you have been placed on psychological review.  This review can take some time as other members of the NYPD team review your file.

Thereafter, you may receive a Notice of Proposed Disqualification or NOPD stating that you have 30 days to appeal.

I have been a civil service disqualification appeals attorney for more than 18 years. During that time I have helped many of my clients win their appeal.
