The Michigan House of Representatives employs both full-time and part-time employees. Employees of the House of Representatives are Legislative employees who are excluded from the classified system of civil service employment.

The House of Representatives is committed to providing the tools and support necessary to foster a safe and healthy work environment for everyone. The House takes workplace harassment seriously. In 2018, a bipartisan work group reviewed the House’s harassment policy and training materials resulting in recommendations, many of which were implemented to strengthen our commitment. The harassment policy is available here.
