The Minnesota Veteran’s Preference Act grants veterans a limited preference over non-veterans in hiring and promotion of public employment.
To qualify for preference, you must have served on active duty in any branch of the Armed Forces of the United States for 181 consecutive days or more and have been honorably discharged; you must be a citizen of the United States and currently not receiving a monthly veteran’s pension based exclusively on length of service; or be the spouse of a deceased veteran or of a disabled veteran who because of disability is unable to qualify.
The City operates under a point preference system which awards points to qualified veterans and/or spouses of deceased or disabled veterans. Ten (10) preference points are granted for non-disabled veterans and widows of a deceased veteran at the initial selection phase or at the time of an open competitive examination, whichever is applicable. Fifteen (15) points are added if the veteran has a permanent service-connected compensable disability as certified by the Veteran’s Administration, is the spouse of a disabled veteran, or the widow of a deceased veteran who was disabled at the time of death.
For promotional opportunities, ten (10) points are granted to disabled veterans only (50% disability required) and these points apply only to the first promotion after securing City employment.
