SECTION 14
Offices, assistants and employees
Rapid Transit (RAT) CHAPTER 48-A, ARTICLE 2
§ 14. Offices, assistants and employees. a. The board of
transportation may rent such offices for a period not to exceed
twenty-one years and employ such deputy commissioners, engineers,
attorneys and other persons, from time to time, as, in its discretion,
it may deem necessary to the proper performance by it of its duties as
prescribed in this chapter.

b. The board of transportation is empowered to organize an operating
division for the operation and maintenance of a publicly owned and
operated railroad, separate and distinct from the organization engaged
in planning and supervising the construction and equipment of railroads
prior to operation, and is hereby authorized to establish and specify
the duties and the regulations which shall govern the work and conduct
of employees in such division and the penalties which may be imposed for
disobedience of or violation of such regulations. Appointments and
promotion to any position in any class of employment in such division
shall be subject to the provisions of the civil service law. Employees
holding positions in such operating division shall be notified in
writing of any charge or accusation of dereliction of duty which is to
be considered by the board of transportation, and shall be allowed at
least five days for answering such charge in writing and be entitled to
a hearing thereon, at which he shall be entitled to be represented by a
person of his own choosing. If in the judgment of the board such charges
of delinquency or misconduct are sustained, such employee may be
suspended without pay for a period not to exceed thirty days, or may be
dismissed from such employment as provided in section twenty-two of the
civil service law. The board may temporarily suspend without pay any
such employee charged with dereliction of duty pending hearing on any
such charges, but if the board shall determine that such charges are not
sustained by the evidence adduced at the hearing thereon, the employee
so suspended shall be entitled to pay for the time of such temporary
suspension.
