Are there any restrictions about the types of positions available for transfer?


Jump to: navigation, search

Some positions in the competitive service such as guard, messenger, elevator operator, and custodian have been restricted by law to persons entitled to Veterans’ preference. Generally, a non-veteran employee cannot be transferred to such positions if there are Veterans available for appointment to them. This restriction does not apply if a non-veteran is already serving in a Federal agency in a position covered by the same generic title. For example, a non-veteran who is serving in the position of guard may be considered for transfer to the position of patrolman, guard, fireman, guard-laborer, etc.
