Executive Order 314

On January 12, 1905, I directed the classification of certain laborers in the Departments at Washington, whose principal duties were of a classified character. These were laborers who had been doing classified work since 1902, when regulations were issued for the appointment of laborers by competitive tests. It now appears from reports made by the heads of Departments that since these reports were made a considerable number of laborers have been assigned to classified work. With the view that hereafter under no circumstances whatever shall any classified laborer be assigned to classified work, I direct that the additional laborers referred to as shown in reports already made to the Civil Service Commission be regarded as classified in the positions occupied by them on the date of this order, and that they may be promoted to the clerical grade or transferred in the manner provided by the civil service rules and regulations. Laborers who, in connection with their usual duties, are to perform work of the grade performed by classified employees shall be appointed upon certificate of the Commission from appropriate registers of eligibles in the manner provided by the civil service rules.
