Question Alleged cheating

2 years 2 months ago - 2 years 2 months ago #9245 by Thinker
Thinker created the topic: Alleged cheating
Is there a way to have an employee investigated regarding an alleged cheating during CS exam. After several attempts to pass exam, this employee still did not pass the CS exam. This employee passed the exam only when this employee took the exam together with a sibling. Both siblings passed the exam. Then someone opened that these siblings took the exam in the same room since they do not have the same surnames after marriage. The sibling of this employee did not apply for government positions even after passing the exam.
My question is, is there a way to know if both siblings are indeed in the same room during the exam and they are seated next to each other. If so, is there a way to investigate if there was some cheating that happened during that occasion? Is there a way to prove that these rumor about cheating is true or not?
Thank you!

Good day Sir/Maam.

Please be informed that as a policy, the Commission does not render opinions/rulings on issues that may eventually be the subject of a complaint or appeal before it. This is especially so if the material facts necessary to a judicious adjudication of the issues are not fully presented or substantiated as in this case.

Nevertheless, we will cite the pertinent provisions under the Civil Service rules and applicable jurisprudence that will best answer your queries.

Section 11. Requisites of a Valid Complaint. No complaint against an official or employee shall be given due course unless the same is in writing, subscribed and sworn to by the complainant. In cases initiated by the proper disciplining authority or an authorized representative, a show cause order is sufficient.

The complaint shall be written in a clear, simple and concise language and in a systematic manner as to apprise the person complained of, of the nature and cause of the accusation and to enable the person complained of to intelligently prepare a defense or answer/comment. Should there be more than one person complained of, the complainant is required to submit additional copies corresponding to the number of persons complained of.

The complaint shall contain the following:

a. full name and address of the complainant;

b. full name and address of the person complained of as well as his/her position and office;

c. a narration of the relevant and material facts which shows the acts or omissions allegedly committed;

d. certified true copies of documentary evidence and affidavits of his/her witnesses, if any; and

e. certification or statement of non-forum shopping.

The absence of any of the aforementioned requirements may cause the dismissal of the complaint without prejudice to its refiling upon compliance with the same.

Section 12. Anonymous Complaint. No anonymous complaint shall be entertained unless the act complained of is of public knowledge or the allegations can be verified or supported by documentary or direct evidence.

We hope to have been of service to you.
