Isabella, a preference eligible veteran, violated his rights under the Veteran Employment Opportunities Act of 1998 (VEOA) because there was no demonstration that a maximum entry-age was essential to the performance of the position. If the agency decides age is not essential to the position, then it must waive the maximum entry-age requirement for veterans' preference eligible applicants.

This means the highest possible rating is 110 (a disabled veteran who earns a score of 100 has 10 extra points added).This type of preference is usually referred to as "derived preference" because it is based on service of a veteran who is not able to use the preference. The VOW Act amends chapter 21 of title 5, United States Code (U.

Special provisions apply to the proposed disqualification of a preference eligible with a 30 percent or more compensable disability. Based on the Board's decision in , qualified preference eligibles may now apply and be considered for vacancies regardless of whether they meet the maximum age requirements identified at 5 U. In instances where the maximum entry-age is waived, the corresponding mandatory retirement age for these individuals will also be higher because it will be reached after 20 years of Law Enforcement Officer (LEO) service for the entitlement to an immediate enhanced annuity.
