Panel Rejects Gov. Jindal Criterion For Layoffs

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — The state Civil Service Commission has refused to approve part of a Jindal administration employee layoff plan because of how decisions would have been made on which employees would lose jobs.

Commission members said on Wednesday that layoff decisions need more transparency.

The Advocate reports the concern developed from a layoff plan affecting a handful of employees.

Under current rules, state agencies must lay off employees who have “poor” or “needs improvement” job performance ratings before any other consideration.

But the administration wants to go further and lay off people who met job expectations, the next category. The plan would give preference to the top two levels, those who exceeded job expectations and those rated outstanding.
