Human Resources

Coordinating Employment Matters

With some 600 people employed by the city of Lafayette, and even more seasonally, the human resources department handles tasks such as:
  • Posting jobs and accepting applications 
  • Administering health, vision, dental and other benefits 
  • Managing employee policies and procedures, salary administration, union/labor relations, training and performance areas
To apply for a city job, please complete the online application for general employment. Before hiring, candidates must pass a drug screen and background check. 

The Immigration Reform and Control Act (IRCA) of 1986 prohibits employers from knowingly recruiting, hiring, or referring for a fee any illegal workers. Please visit for more information.

The City also participates in E-Verify, an electronic program offered through the US Department of Homeland Security to verify the employment eligibility of employees after hire.
