Rauner signs bill to allow hiring preference for veterans

( KTRS ) Private employers in Illinois can now give preference to veterans when hiring new workers.

Gov. Bruce Rauner signed the Veterans Preference in Private Employment Act into law this week. The measure allows private employers to voluntarily adopt hiring policies that give preference to those who served in the military, whether on active or reserve duty, including the Illinois National Guard.

A similar state law is in place for public employees.

The veterans preference policies must be in writing and publicly displayed at the workplace or on the employer’s website, as well as on job applications.
