When the civil service rules require an applicant, candidate, employee, or employer to receive notice, how must notice be provided?
(1) Except as provided in chapters 357-40
WAC, when the civil service rules require an applicant, candidate, employee, or employer to receive notice, the notice must be provided by personal delivery, United States mail, or by telephone facsimile transmission with same-day mailing of copies unless the specific rule requiring notice allows for alternative methods of providing notice such as electronic mail ("e-mail"), state mail service, commercial parcel delivery or campus mail service.
(2) Except as provided in chapters 357-40
WAC, service of notice upon parties will be regarded as completed when personal delivery has been accomplished; or upon deposit in the United States mail, properly stamped and addressed; or upon production by telephone facsimile transmission of confirmation of transmission. When a specific rule allows alternative methods of service, service upon parties will be regarded as completed when it is actually received by the party to which notice is being provided.
