In addition to prescribing rules and regulations for employment they also serve as an appeals panel in case of disqualification for employment or disciplinary actions.

Regular meetings of the Commission are generally held biweekly on Thursdays at 8:15am in Building B, Room 29 at the Personnel Commission offices at 4400 Ladoga Avenue, Lakewood, CA  90713   Driving Directions and Bus Routes
