Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) Policy

Veterans' Preference

Veterans' Preference can be applied to a veteran's eligibility for qualifying open and non-promotional examinations.

To determine if the exam being administered qualifies for Veterans' Preference, please review the examination bulletin. Veterans' Preference will be awarded as follows:

Any veteran, widow or widower of a veteran, or spouse of a 100 percent disabled veteran, who achieves a passing score in an entrance examination, shall be ranked in the top rank of the resulting eligibility list. Any veteran who has been dishonorably discharged or released is not eligible for Veterans' Preference.

An entrance examination is defined, under the law, as any open competitive examination.

Veterans' Preference is not granted once a person achieves permanent civil service status.

For more information about Veterans' Preference, please visit CalCareer's Veterans' Preference page: (https://calcareers.ca.gov/CalHRPublic/Landing/Jobs/Veteransinformation.aspx)
