Prohibited Political Activity

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 or opposition of a candidate, party, or faction, and avoid the APPEARANCE of giving such support.

General Circular 2016-020 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.

*Please note that the State of LA is not responsible for postings viewed outside of the LA Careers system. Applicants must apply during the open period for announced vacancies, and late applications, no matter their source, will not be accepted
