Sections 230.44, 230.445 and 230.45 of the Wisconsin Statutes as well as Administrative Rules ERC 91-95 control how the WERC handles state employee civil service appeals. However, we hope you will find the information that follows to be useful.

Final decisions issued by the Commission Chairman or a staff attorney are published in their entirety on the WERC website to provide transparency to the public and as a resource for parties that may use the WERC’s services in future matters. In instances where confidential medical information is or may be referenced in the final decision, the parties should bring this to the Commission’s attention so that privacy may be respected as part of the publication process.
