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 hiring 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.
