OPM Drafts Rules For Hiring Military Spouses

Some military spouses are a step closer to being able take advantage of a new quicker, noncompetitive hiring authority to get jobs in the federal government.
The Office of Personnel Management has drafted rules to implement a Sept. 25 executive order allowing federal managers to hire qualified military spouses without putting them through the normal competitive hiring process. The proposed rules were published in the Dec. 5 Federal Register .
President George W. Bush's executive order applies to spouses of service members who are incapacitated or killed, and spouses of members relocating on permanent change-of-station orders.
The proposed regulation would be retroactive for spouses who have relocated with their service members within one year before the regulation becomes effective. In its current form, the regulation does not specifically address retroactivity for spouses of service members who are incapacitated or killed.
