Veteran's Preference

The Oregon Veterans' Preference in Public Employment (ORS 408.230) legislation requires that public employers grant a preference in employment to eligible veteran or disabled veteran applicants who meet minimum qualifications and any special qualifications for the position to which they apply. The required preferences do not compel a public employer to appoint a veteran or disabled veteran. However, they do require that an eligible veteran or disabled veteran be appointed when the veteran’s or disabled veteran’s application assessment, combined with the veteran’s or disabled veteran’s preference, is equal to or higher than that of a non-veteran.
