IID Board approves hiring preference for Vets

(IID Board approves hiring preference for Vets)…A while back IID Director Bruce Kuhn said he was surprised a preference was not already in place.

Kuhn asked Human Resources Director Dan Devoy to look into the issue. At the time Devoy said there might be legal ramifications preventing the District from offering the preference. Tuesday Devoy returned to the Imperial Irrigation District Board of Directors with the news. He said he came up with a hiring regulation that would provide Military Veterans with a 5-point preference on their job applications. He said Disabled Vets would receive 8 points. The IID grades job applications on a point system. The Board approved Devoy’s plan on a unanimous vote.
