Table of contents What's This?
Contains minutes and meeting files of the San Francisco Civil Service Commission.
The San Francisco Civil Service Commission is charged by the City Charter with providing qualified persons for appointment to the service of the City and County of San Francisco. The City and County of San Francisco currently employs just over 36,000 people. For the San Francisco Unified School District and Community College District, Civil Service rules apply only to classified employees. (Teachers and administrators are covered under the Education Code.) The department establishes rules and policy; hears appeals on examinations, eligible lists, minimum qualifications, classification, discrimination complaints, future employment with the City, and other merit system matters; provides rules and policies interpretation; reviews and audits merit system operation; approves contracting out based on the scope of services; and conducts training and outreach on the merit system.
