Laid off employees in Louisiana have filed a law suit over Governor Jindal’s changes to the Louisiana Civil Service Commission’s layoff rules. The suit, which was filed on July 30, questions the legality of their layoffs as well as the seven percent cut to their previous salaries.

The complaint charges that the employees had obtained a permanent classified status in the Louisiana Civil Service system and that they had “bumping rights” as well as other job protections.

The lawsuit says, “This political pressure was, and is, designed to systematically cripple the protections afforded state workers by the Louisiana Civil Service Commission, thus enlarging the political power of elected officials that results from patronage hiring and other politically driven personnel actions.”
