Understanding the Battle Over Civil Service Rules

New rules set to go into effect next week in New Jersey would allow managers to promote state workers without relying on results of Civil Service exams.

Democratic lawmakers are threatening legal action to thwart the regulations, saying they undo protections for state government workers and were adopted illegally despite legislation aimed at stopping them.

The Civil Service Commission adopted new regulations this month that would give managers more flexibility when promoting workers. Instead of depending on exam results, they could choose whomever they want.

Republican Gov. Chris Christie’s administration says the commission made several changes to its proposed regulations in response to the Democrats’ concern, including spelling out that veterans would still have preference in jobs.

The rules are set to go into effect June 2.
