2015 Charles E. Dunbar Jr. Career Civil Service Awards

The Louisiana Civil Service League is now accepting nominations for the 2015 Charles E. Dunbar Jr. Career Civil Service Awards. In the 57th year of the annual program, more than 800 classified public employees have received the award. This is a great way to recognize outstanding service and commitment to Louisiana.

The award is named in honor of Charles E. Dunbar Jr., who was responsible for spearheading the effort to establish a classified workforce that would be governed through merit system principles and founding the Louisiana Civil Service League.

Submission forms, deadlines, Frequently Asked Questions and other information on nominating a fellow employee can be found here.

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.

*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
