(b) When an appeal is taken to the board, the board shall establish a time and a place for the hearing which shall be held within 45 days after receipt of request for the appeal. The board shall notify the person bringing the appeal and the appointing authority or other person whose action is being reviewed of the time and the place of the hearing at least 14 days prior to such hearing. Each party at the hearing shall have the right to be represented by a person of the party's own choice. Hearings shall be conducted in accordance with the provisions of the Kansas administrative procedure act. For purposes of the administrative procedure act, the state civil service board shall be deemed the agency head. The board may affirm, modify or reverse an agency action and order any other action it deems appropriate.
(c) The board, or the director of personnel services when authorized by majority vote of the board, may depose witnesses. Either party to a hearing may depose witnesses in accordance with the Kansas administrative procedure act. If books and papers are required to be produced in advance of a hearing date, the person or agency producing the books and papers shall be entitled to receive reasonable compensation to recover all costs of such production from the person or agency for which they are produced. The board, any presiding officer or the director may examine such public records as may be required in relation to any matter which the board has authority to investigate.
(d) Each person not in the classified or unclassified service who appears before the board or the director by order shall receive for such person's attendance the fees and mileage provided for witnesses in civil actions in the district court. Such fees and mileage shall be audited and paid by the state upon presentation of proper vouchers. Each witness subpoenaed at the request of parties other than the board or the director shall be entitled to compensation from the state for attendance or travel only if the board certifies that the testimony of such witness was relevant and material to the matter investigated or, if such witness is not called to testify, the board determines and certifies that such compensation should be paid.
