OPM administers entitlement to veterans' preference in employment under title 5, United States Code, and oversees other statutory employment requirements in titles 5 and 38. As HR professionals and Hiring Managers, it is important to understand veterans’ eligibility and their specific rights and benefits in Federal employment.

We want veterans to view the Federal Government as the employer of choice and we aim to provide agency officials with the tools and resources needed to successfully hire a veteran. Your partnership in this endeavor will ensure its success!
