inaction of the Commission, Employee Board, or Commission staff.
(b) Relief Which May Be Sought. A motion may request modification or
rescission of a Commission or Employee Board order, or of the action or
inaction of the Commission, Employee Board, or Commission staff; the
Commission or Employee Board may likewise request such relief
(c) To Whom Motions May Be Addressed. If the order appealed is a
nonfinal order of an Employee Board, the motion may be
addressed to the Board or to the Commission; otherwise, the
motion must be addressed to the Commission.
(d) Deadline For Filing Motions. The motion must
be filed within 30 days after service of the order, or of the action or
unless the time for filing a motion is extended by the
Commission in writing.
(e) Style and Contents of Motions. The motion must set forth specific
grounds for modification or rescission of the order. Appeals
from orders issued by the Commission, or from the action or inaction of the Commission
shall be styled "motions
for rehearing;" appeals from orders of an Employee Board, or from the
action or inaction of Employee Board or staff,
shall be styled "motions for reconsideration."
(f) Grant or Denial of Motions. The
Commission may grant or deny such motions, in whole or in
part. If the Commission grants such a motion a new order
shall be issued within 180 days
after service of the order granting the motion unless the
order granting the motion also disposed of the issues in the
proceeding and is therefore a final, appealable order. If
the Commission fails to act on any such motion within
45 days after it is filed, or up to 90
days if the period for acting on the motion has been extended
by the Commission in writing, the motion shall be deemed to
have been denied by operation of law.
(g) Appeals of Rulings by Hearing Examiners. Notwithstanding any
other provision of this Section, interlocutory appeals of rulings by
hearing examiners shall be as provided by the Commission's Rules of
Practice; no other appeals of action or inaction by a hearing examiner may be taken.
(2) Motions to Reopen. The Commission may, at any time after
notice to the parties and the public, reopen a proceeding to consider
clarification, modification, or rescission of its order.
Reopening may be on the Commission's own motion or on the
motion of any interested person. Upon a finding of clerical
or technical error the Commission may modify or rescind its
order in the proceeding. The Commission may not, on
reopening, impair the vested rights of any person.
