The following information will provide you with a better understanding about CDOT's application process.
Colorado State Statute and State Personnel Procedures 8-81 through 8-93, 8-101 and 8-102 provides you with the right to appeal any step of the selection process if you find the action taken is arbitrary, capricious or contrary to rule or law. If you believe the rejection of your application or the content of an examination was arbitrary, capricious or contrary to rule or law (scores and ranks are not considered as conduct or content), you may view instructions for the appeal process and complete the Colorado State Personnel Consolidated Appeal/Dispute Form found at www.colorado.gov/cs/Satellite/DPA-SPB/SPB/1232721347216. Appeals must be in writing and received no later than 10 calendar days from the date the application was rejected or date of the examination. The appeal procedures also apply to charges of discrimination.
Any person with a disability as defined by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) may be provided a reasonable accommodation upon request to enable the person to complete an employment examination. To receive the accommodation, the person making the request must present medical documentation that describes the disability which justifies the accommodation. Because it requires several days for CDOT to evaluate the request and prepare for the accommodation, it is essential for the person who believes he/she may need an accommodation to locate or obtain the documentation that he/she intends to submit well in advance of the exam date. Failure to provide the medical documentation several days in advance of an exam could make it impossible for CDOT to prepare for and provide the requested accommodation.
To request a reasonable test accommodation for an examination, please contact the Center for Human Resource Management at (303)757-9216 or the ADA Coordinator, Fred Longs, at (303)512-4143, 4201 E. Arkansas Ave., Denver, CO 80222 several days before the exam date.
