The City of New Orleans

Mayor Mitchell J. Landrieu

The Civil Service Commission

City Civil Service is divided into two parts:

  • The Civil Service Department is a constitutionally created entity. The department is responsible for the overall administration of the personnel function in City government. 
  • The Civil Service Commission, likewise a constitutionally created entity, is the policy-making body that exercises oversight of activities of the Civil Service Department. The five members of the Civil Service Commission are appointed by the New Orleans City Council to overlapping six-year terms. Four of the members are nominated by the Presidents of designated local universities and one member is a City employee nominated by fellow employees.  The commission is a quasi-judicial body with power to make rules which have the force and effect of law. In its judicial capacity, the Commission serves as the court of first instance for all employee appeals resulting from disciplinary actions. In its legislative capacity, it adopts rules and establishes policies that regulate the conduct of labor and management in the merit system.
