In 1980, the Mississippi Legislature created the Mississippi Employee Appeals Board (EAB), an entity separated from the MSPB by statute, but supported by the agency through administrative services. The EAB is comprised of three Hearing Officers, one from each Supreme Court district, who are appointed by the Mississippi State Personnel Board. These officers provide state employees with an opportunity to appeal personnel action adversely affecting compensation or employment status (formal disciplinary action defined in Section 7.1 of the Mississippi State Employee Handbook). Grievable issues specified in Section 8.1 of the Mississippi State Employee Handbook may also be appealed to the EAB.
