Our state standards tools help members stay on top of evolving state and local compliance requirements. 

Veterans' Preference for Private Sector Employers

Many states have enacted laws that permit private employers to voluntarily develop and maintain hiring, promotion, and retention policies that give a preference to those individuals who meet the definition of a veteran or even those who are the spouse or widow/widower of a military service member. In CWC’s State Veterans Preference Laws for Private Employers tool, members can see each state’s applicable provisions relating to the maintenance of such a policy preference and any important definitions that may be applicable.
