New Personnel Board Appeal Form




The Personnel Board was established to safeguard the "merit system" for state government employees and to serve as an impartial adjudicator of employee-employer disputes for state government.

As you navigate our website, please call us if you have any questions. The staff of the Personnel Board will do their best to answer your questions, but we cannot give legal advice.

Remember, the Kentucky Personnel Board is ready to serve you whether you are an employee, a state agency, or an interested taxpayer.

Our Mission

The Kentucky Personnel Board promotes merit principles in government service and the improvement of personnel standards in the state service. The Kentucky Personnel Board hears the appeals of classified employees, other employees, and applicants who believe they have been penalized without cause. The Kentucky Personnel Board has the authority to conduct investigations of merit system violations and to promulgate administrative regulations concerning the state personnel system.​
