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.

Office Closure – The Louisiana Department of State Civil Service and the Baton Rouge Testing and Recruiting Office will be closed on Tuesday, February 09, 2016 for the Mardi Gras Holiday. There WILL BE NO Civil Service testing on this day.

*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
