Civil Service panel rejects LSU hospital layoff plans

The Times Picayune, June 6, 2013
BATON ROUGE -- The state Civil Service Commission refused Wednesday to approve layoff plans tied to Gov. Bobby Jindal's deals to privatize four LSU hospitals. The commission voted 4-3 to reject the layoffs of about 3,000 state employees at the hospitals in New Orleans, Lafayette, Houma and Lake Charles. The Advocate reports that commissioners complained about the lack of information provided by LSU about the privatization deals. Civil Service is the state's human resources agency. The commission is charged with overseeing layoff plans when contracts outsource jobs that traditionally have been held by state employees.
