The State of Texas is dedicated to hiring qualified veterans and their family members in achieving their employment goals. To assist state agencies, Texas Government Code Chapter 657 establishes guidance on Veteran’s Employment Preference. The following individuals qualify for a veteran’s employment preference:
a veteran, including a veteran with a disability
a veteran’s surviving spouse who has not remarried
an orphan of a veteran if the veteran was killed while on active duty
Veteran Employer Liaisons (VEL) serve as a link between companies needing qualified Texas veterans who are seeking employment.
