If you receive a NYPD psychological, medical or character/background disqualification, you should appeal. There are two factors which are crucial in your disqualification appeal.  The first one is following the appeal process, and the second is the facts of your case.

It is vital that you consult with experts who are experienced in the appeals process. You will need both an attorney and a Mental Health Professional that specialize in disqualification appeals. Attempting to appeal on your own may cause you to miss out on important opportunities to make crucial arguments that could turn the appeal in your favor.

Having been a civil service disqualification appeals attorney for more than 18 years, I have extensive knowledge on how to appeal a NYPD Disqualification. Over the years I have helped many clients win their appeal. I can help you too.

We are here to assist you if you receive a NYPD Disqualification

Feel free to call us at 516-248-0040 or email me: kevin@sheerinlaw.com.

There is a two step appeal process:

The first step in the appeal process is to appeal to the NYPD, who will review your appeal package. In the case of psychological disqualifications you may get a second psychological interview. If you receive a second psychological interview it is best to prepare with an expert.

The next step in the appeal process is the Notice of Disqualification (NOD) which is appealed to the NYC Civil Service Commission. The Commission holds hearings to determine if your disqualification was improper.

When you are disqualified, that disqualification will not be reversed unless you take action. I have been assisting disqualified NYPD, FDNY, DSNY, NYC DOC candidates for more than 18 years. Each appeal is different, just as your history of school, work and personal relationships are different.

However, before you can get a second interview you must first appeal your disqualification.

It is imperative that you obtain all of the facts before you act.

I am available if you would like to discuss the facts surrounding your particular situation and the appeal process for NOPD appeals (“step one”). We can also discuss what happened in the oral psychological interview, some tips and tactics, and how to avoid traps in a second interview, as well as the process for filing an appeal with the New York City Civil Service Commission in the event that you do not succeed at step one. We can also go over how to present the best case in order to get a hearing before the commission and how to succeed at that hearing.

What you can expect in the NYPD psychological 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 the answers you gave on the written exam and asked to explain your answers.

Law Office of Kevin P. Sheerin

You will be questioned about your Educational History, Work History, Driving History, Arrest History (if any), Psychotherapy or medication taken, family and personal relationships as well as other relevant topics.

You will be asked to explain any issues that may arise in connection with any of the above topics.

You may also be asked to provide authorizations for the Psychologist to get documentation from your schools or jobs, which you will have to provide in order 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.

A Notice of Proposed Disqualification (NOPD) is the first notice you will receive when you are NYPD disqualified.  You have 30 days to respond/appeal to a NOPD.  It is wise to consult with an attorney to protect your rights and make the most compelling arguments to increase your chances of getting a reversal of your NYPD disqualification.

There are 3 main types of disqualifications for civil service jobs – medical, psychological and character.

Medical

Reason: Fail the medical examination.

There are many reasons why candidates can be medically disqualified. Any physical disability that would make it difficult to perform the duties of the position applied for would be grounds for disqualification. This would include minor problems with hearing or vision as well as more major issues involving the respiratory or cardiovascular systems.

Psychological

Reason: Fail the written or oral psychological examination.

There are two components to the psychological exam – written and oral. You can fail either one of these portions and be disqualified. If you receive a psychological disqualification you will need a second opinion from another psychologist. This doctor will need to interview you, review the records from the department you applied to, and then write a report giving their professional opinion of your fitness to serve as a civil servant.

Character

Reason: Fail the background check.

On the DCAS website they set forth the following list of concerning factors that may disqualify a candidate from the NYPD:

The following are factors which would ordinarily be cause for disqualification:

  • Conviction of an offense which indicates lack of good moral character or disposition towards violence or disorder, or which is punishable by one or more years imprisonment.
  • Repeated convictions of an offense which indicates disrespect for the law.
  • Discharge from employment as a result of poor behavior or inability to adjust to discipline.
  • Dishonorable discharge from the United States Military.
  • Conviction of an offense for Domestic Violence Misdemeanors.
  • A Felony.
  • Statutory Disqualification (disqualified by law).

If a candidate had an Individual Education Plan (IEP) in school, some NYPD psychologists will consider that a reason for disqualification. The NYPD psychologist will ask you to sign an authorization to get your school records. When the records are received they will review them and determine if the issues you had in school will effect your candidacy.

If a candidate took ADHD medicine while in school, this may also be considered as a reason for NYPD disqualification. Again, the NYPD psychologist will request an authorization to obtain your records from school, and review them to determine if you should be disqualified on that basis.

You can appeal your disqualification by getting an independent psychologist to help you. They will explain that what happened back in school is not your current condition or state. Often candidates have outgrown the need for medicines, or their condition has not followed them into adulthood.

Of course, if you do not take action, the disqualification will become final and will effect your ability to get any other civil service jobs.

Good News… The number of candidates getting their disqualification reversed at second psychological interviews has increased.

However, in order to get a chance at a second interview, you MUST first file a NYPD NOPD Psychological Disqualification Appeal.  If you receive a second interview you are best served to know the issues that were raised in your disqualification and the arguments made by your appeal Mental Health Professional (MHP).

With more than 18 years of experience as a NYPD disqualification appeals lawyer I have helped many disqualified candidates who have received either a Notice of Proposed Disqualification (NOPD) or a final Notice of Disqualification (NOD) for psychological reasons from the NYPD.

The NOPD letter provides the candidate with an opportunity to select and hire their own psychological expert and have the NYPD psychological file sent to that expert for review and preparation of a rebuttal report. However, in order for the NYPD psychological file to be released, the disqualified candidate MUST first respond to the NOPD.

It is crucial, as a disqualified candidate, that you select a psychologist familiar with the appeals process. ONCE YOU SELECT AN EXPERT TO ASSIST YOU IN YOUR APPEAL YOU WILL MOST LIKELY BE UNABLE TO SWITCH EXPERTS LATER.

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

I have extensive experience regarding how to appeal a NYPD Disqualification. Over the years I have helped many clients win their appeal. I can help you too.
