Civil Service Commissions by City

Is there a federal Civil Service Commission?

Yes. Although the U.S. Civil Service Commission was dissolved in 1979, its responsibilities related to civil service were transferred to the newly created Office of Personnel Management and the Merit Systems Protection Board.

Are all government jobs covered by a Civil Service Commission?

No. Certain positions are considered exempt from civil service principles and protections at every level of government. It is generally accepted that chief elected officials, such as mayors, governors, and the President, should have the ability to appoint individuals with similar political and policy orientation to head departments or other high level, leadership positions.

Does the Civil Service Commission implement Equal Employment Opportunity and Affirmative Action plans?

Responsibility for Equal Employment Opportunity and Affirmative Action (EEO/AA) plans typically falls within the human resources or personnel department of an agency, or within an office established specifically for developing and implementing EEO/AA plans.
