Civil Service Contacts


The employment of state classified employees is governed by the Civil Service Article and Civil Service Rules. Employees may always contact the Department of State Civil Service concerning personal employment matters, such as arranging testing, filing an appeal, or applying for positions at other agencies. Contact information may be found on the Department of State Civil Service’s website, www.civilservice.la.gov.

No individual, however, may represent SSD before the Civil Service Commission or the Department of State Civil Service, without authorization from the SSD Superintendent. Te ensure that SSD’s interests are properly represented, and to avoid any misrepresentation of employment practices, policies, or other related issues, the following guidelines shall be adhered to:

  1. All Civil Service matters are to be coordinated through the Human Resources Office. LSS matters are to be coordinated through the school’s Human Resources Office; SSP matters are to be coordinated through the Department of Education’s Human Resources Office.
  2. Requests for any matter requiring Civil Service approval are to be submitted to the Human Resources Office for review and appropriate action, which will be determined by the Appointing Authority. 
  3. Official requests to Civil Service will be sent only with the Appointing Authority’s approval, and usually by the Human Resources Director or Administrator.
