Settlement Program

Parties may participate in the Board's settlement program. If a party requests settlement conference, the Board will typically appoint an administrative law judge (ALJ) who,is not assigned as the hearing judge for the matter to serve as a settlement facilitator. Parties will be contacted to schedule settlement conferences.  In accordance with Board Rule 8-58(B), if a party to an appeal requests a settlement conference, the other party must appear at least once in a conference and attempt in good faith to settle the matter.

The settlement process is private, confidential and privileged unless the information disclosed is required to be reported under specific law. Only the parties and their representatives can participate in settlement proceedings, which are closed to any other person. The settlement facilitator may permit a third party to attend the settlement conference if notified in advance of the conference.

Please refer to Board Rules 8-57 through 8-61 for further details about the State Personnel Board settlement process. Current Board Rules are available on the this site's HOME page on the drop down menu under "Board Rules".
