Training & Workforce Development — Comprehensive Public Training Program (CPTP)


August 2017 CPTP Blog

By now, you have heard that changes are coming to the classified services’ pay plans! If you want to see what all the talk is about, you can check out General Circular 2017-024 on Civil Service’s website. All pay schedules will be amended effective January 2, 2018. This is the first time in a decade that the pay schedules have changed. We at Civil Service are committed to making sure you understand how these upcoming changes affect you.

If you are curious as to how these changes will affect you, you will not have to go far. Civil Service has put together an Employee Educational Outreach team and they will be traveling around to state facilities in the Baton Rouge area to work one on one with you. During scheduled times, you will be able to walk up to a table and sit down with a Civil Service employee and find out how your pay will be affected. You can expect to take away what your salary will be on January 1, 2018, January 2, 2018 (if applicable), and July 15, 2018 (if applicable). This is the schedule as of August 1, 2017. Please check out the Compensation Redesign page for the most up-to-date schedule.
