SUBJECT: Disposition of Veterans Credits - Form Number S-203
The NYSTEP system is designed to provide operating agencies within New York State government with an on-line method for processing personnel transactions. The implementation of the New York State Electronic Personnel system has resulted in the following changes in our processes.
Disposition of Veterans Credits Form Number S-203
Notice of Discipline
Agencies are no longer required to submit the Notice of Discipline to the Department of Civil Service in order for DCS to approve an appointment. Agencies will be responsible for maintaining the documentation in their files.
Rein Dir is the code used when an agency is directed to reinstate an employee based on an administrative action (i.e., court order). Only the Department of Civil Service can enter the code Rein Dir. Agencies will need to contact their status examiner relative to the documentation required prior to the transaction being submitted via NYSTEP.
Clearance for Research Scientist
Clearance for Research Scientist titles will be done off line (agencies will not use the RIF system). Agencies who wish to fill a Research Scientist position (at any level) will need to contact Betsy Gordon, (518) 457-3626 in the Reemployment Services Unit to obtain a clearance number prior to entering a transaction into NYSTEP.
Changing Vets Status
Changes to an employee's veteran status can now be made directly in NYSTEP by agencies on the Personal Data 2 panel.
