The Veterans Emphasis Program is directed at assuring that all veterans,
particularly Vietnam Era and disabled veterans, have the full measure of
employment in the Federal service. The legal basis for the program include the
Veterans Preference Act of 1944 (codified as 5 USC 2108); 5 USC 3114
(non-competitive appointing authority for 30 percent or more disabled
veterans); Veterans Readjustment Appointment (EO 11521); and the Vietnam Era
Readjustment Assistance Act of 1974 (38 USC 2104).
