Compensation Redesign Plan

State Civil Service is pleased to announce the approval of a compensation redesign plan for the state’s classified workforce. The plan, adopted by the State Civil Service Commission (SCSC) on June 7, and approved by Governor John Bel Edwards on June 26, represents a fundamental shift in the way classified employees are compensated.

SCS has produced an informational video on the upcoming compensation changes. We have also created a webpage where you can find important documents; pay schedules to be effective January 2, 2018; and revised Civil Service Rules to be effective January 1, 2018 and July 1, 2018 here.
