How does Veterans’ Preference work?

Posted on October 21, 2021 at 12:49 PM by Kansas Department of Administration

Each veteran who meets the requirements for a vacant position shall be offered an interview for that vacancy when all of the following conditions are met:

  • The vacancy is a regular classified position that states in its job notice that the position is "Veterans’ Preference" Eligible (VPE). This includes all external, internal or agency only vacancies.
  • No individuals who are eligible for the Kansas Employee Preference Program have applied for that vacancy.
  • The military service member was not dismissed or did not resign in good standing from state service.
  • The military service member’s active duty is not for the Reserves or National Guard training.
  • The military service member is separated and not on active service at the time of application.
