Prohibited Political Activity

In the height of this year’s election cycle, it is important to remember that as classified state employees, Article X, Section 9 of the State Constitution governs our participation in political activities. The United States Supreme Court has recognized the right of a state to restrict such activity in order to avoid the appearance of such support. This means that classified state employees must avoid the ACTUAL support of a candidate, party, or faction, and avoid the APPEARANCE of giving such support.

General Circular 2014-027 details the “do’s and don’ts” for all state employees regarding political activity. State Civil Service has also produced a video titled Prohibited Political Activities, which you can view on the State Civil Service YouTube channel. For additional questions, please contact State Civil Service at (225) 342-8274 or SCSInfo@la.gov.
