He was secretary of State for Reform of the State in the government of Jean-Pierre Raffarin from 2004 to 2005.

Woerth founded the "club de la boussole", a group of UMP députés, and is a member of the Réformateurs, a liberal trend within the UMP.

He was named Minister for the Budget, Public Accounts and the Civil Service on 18 May 2007, in the government of Prime Minister François Fillon.2 Woerth was appointed Minister of Labor, Solidarity and Civil Service in March 2010.3

On 5 July 2010, following its investigations on the Liliane Bettencourt and Éric Woerth political controversy, the online newspaper Media Part revealed a report where Claire Thibout, an ex-accountant working for Liliane Bettencourt, accused Nicolas Sarkozy and Éric Woerth of receiving illegal campaign donations in 2007, in cash.45 The Canard enchaîné and Marianne weeklies later revealed that Éric Woerth authorized the sale of the Compiegne racetrack to a group with close connections to the UMP, for a very low price and through an improper procedure.6 He currently is under formal investigation by the Cour de Justice de la République for that sale.
