Guidelines for Conduct of Hearings by the Civil Service Board, Trial Board, and Administrative Law Judges
When a hearing has been set before the Civil Service Board, Trial Board, or Administrative Law Judge (all hereinafter referred to as the "Board") all parties will abide by the guidelines and code of conduct outlined herein. A hearing will be carried out with the same decorum as if it were a court proceeding. Parties and their representatives are reminded that testimony before the Board is given under oath and the conduct of any person in connection with any proceeding is subject to Texas statutes respecting perjury and obstruction of justice. Any person having knowledge of perjury or obstruction of justice in connection with a matter arising under the City of Dallas Personnel Rules shall inform the Board accordingly. The Board, following any appropriate investigation, shall report any allegation or evidence of perjury or obstruction of justice, including any retaliation or threat of retaliation against an employee or witness, to the appropriate authorities.
