Many people seek employment from cities, counties or the state of California, which often require them to pass a series of exams, including a psychological evaluation. Examples of these include: Coroner, Police and Fire Departments, County Sherriff's, Probation, Corrections, Child Protective Services, etc. Sometimes their efforts are unsuccessful. When this happens, current law allows the individual to seek an appeal.
The pre-employment appeal process requires that the psychologist performing the evaluation meet certain training and expereince requirements; more specifically, that the psychologist have met the requirements of the California Commission on Peace Officer Standards and Training (POST).
