The bill creates a statutory basis to allow a private employer to
give preference to a veteran of the armed forces or the National Guard
and the spouse of a disabled veteran or a service member killed in the line
of duty when hiring a new employee, as long as the veteran or the spouse
is as qualified as other applicants for employment. The bill allows a

private employer's veterans' preference employment policy to also include
the preferential hiring of veterans who have been discharged from active
duty within the last 10 years, as determined by the discharge date. The bill
clarifies that a private employer that adopts a program that gives
preferences to veterans or their spouses is not committing a
discriminatory or unfair labor practice.
