exemptions of federal employment for Schedule A disabled applicants
posted 3 years ago
If you are a person with permanent disabilities, and a job posting by the federal government requires applicants to observe the age limitations to be a member, can you be exempt from this requirement for applying for that particular position?
For an Army example, HR from the National Guard asked me to discuss with an Army Recruiter in my profession filed for a computer scientist position which I'm qualified for. The HR person informed me that the position is exempt from Schedule A, so I need to meet all qualifications, which require this Army National Guard membership after recruitment.
For a VA example, I have not spoken to HR from the VA quite yet, but I'm inquiring about another position with them that wouldn't require any physical abilities, but requires you to be registered with the Selective Service System. But I'm too old to apply now. So I will find out from the VA soon here.
