The merit system for local health departments (LHDs) is administered by the state Department for Public Health and establishes uniform personnel practices for Kentucky’s LHDs.

The merit system promotes recruitment of qualified individuals for the public health workforce, retains employees with a program of benefits and compensation and protects the rights of employees during their service.

Administrative regulations covering various aspects of personnel management and administration are developed under the authority and provisions of Kentucky Revised Statute 211.1755 and apply to 58 of Kentucky’s 61 health departments. Excluded from the regulations are the Louisville-Jefferson County Health Department, the Lexington-Fayette County Health Department and the Northern Kentucky District Health Department, which are governed by separate statutory authority and personnel programs.

This website provides information for local health department employees, state offices, potential applicants for employment and the general public regarding the personnel program and policies for local health departments.
