2019 Regular Session
Labor & Employment
The bill allows private employers to give preference to veterans of the armed forces or the National Guard when hiring, promoting, and retaining employees as long as the veterans are as qualified as other individuals. The bill clarifies that employers who adopt a program that gives preferences to veterans are not committing a discriminatory or unfair labor practice.
