About the Commission
The Civil Service Commission is a nonpartisan public body responsible for policy direction and oversight of a merit system. This system is used for the selection, promotion, and retention of civil service employees in Placer County service, as governed by the County Charter. The Commission makes final decisions on appeals involving alleged improper action or the denial of any rights provided by the County Code and Civil Service Rules. This includes examination and selection procedures, appeals relating to the classification plan, and/or appeals from disciplinary actions.
We are committed to ensuring that persons with disabilities are able to fully participate in public meetings. Listening devices are available for the hearing impaired. If you require additional disability-related modifications or accommodations, please contact the Executive Secretary. If requested, the agenda will be provided in appropriate alternative formats to persons with disabilities. All requests must be in writing and received by the Executive Secretary by mail or in person at least five business days before the meeting. Requests received within five business days will be accommodated only if time permits.
