Certification

CSL § 100
§ 101
No payroll may be approved or paid by any State fiscal officer unless and until the Department of Civil Service certifies to such officer that the persons to be paid are holding their positions in accordance with Civil Service Laws and Rules. Payment of an employee by a fiscal officer after the refusal of the Department to certify his/her employment constitutes a misdemeanor. Certifications are issued by the Department of Civil Service on a biweekly basis covering new appointments and changes in employees' status. Civil Service Law also requires that the Civil Service Department examine the payrolls of all departments, agencies and authorities at least annually, and authorizes the Department to conduct such an examination at any time.
