§ 63.1. Name Clearing Hearing Procedures.
(a) In those situations where an employee's Limited Term (LT), Seasonal, or Temporary Authorization (TAU) appointment is terminated for fault, based on charges of misconduct which might stigmatize his or her reputation, or seriously impair his or her opportunity to earn a living, or which might seriously damage his or her standing or association in his community, the employee shall be entitled to file a request for a “Name Clearing” Hearing to be conducted by the appointing authority.
(b) Any Name Clearing Hearing conducted by an appointing authority should, at a minimum, conform to the following requirements:
(1) The employee should file his or her request with the appointing authority within five business days of the effective date of the notice of termination;
(2) The appointing authority should conduct the hearing and issue its decision within 21 days of the effective date of the notice of termination, unless the employee agrees to a hearing to be conducted at a later date;
(3) The employee should be entitled to be represented by a representative of his or her choosing;
(4) The appointing authority's representative should be a neutral, impartial decision-maker, who has the authority to sustain the termination, or revoke the “for fault” designation concerning the appellant's termination;
(c) Upon conclusion of the hearing, the appointing authority's representative shall determine whether the allegations contained in the notice of termination are supported. If the allegations are not supported, a decision shall be issued to reflect that the employee's termination was without fault. Such a decision will not, however, require that the appellant be reinstated to his or her position, except as otherwise required by law.
(d) The Board does not conduct Name Clearing Hearings, nor is there any right of appeal to the Board from a decision by an appointing authority, except as otherwise required by law.
