    That's what I keep hearing. Getting past the indian preference on the other hand is much more difficult. Not impossible, but difficult.

      Ok so when did it become legal to discriminate against someone for age. There are so many federal jobs I can't get after 37 and I found out tonight that large Police Departments have a cut off at 35. Even the Army stops at 40 but you can't get into officer candidate school if over 28. This is BS!!!!
      I was on the back end and forced to retire at 57......I feel your pain because I didn't want to retire.

        This information is straight from OPM website.

        http://www.opm.gov/staffingPortal/Ve...Qualifications

        5 U.S.C. 3312, 5 CFR Part 339.204

        Age Qualifications
        On July 2, 2008, the Merit Systems Protection Board (Board) issued a final decision in Robert P. Isabella v. Department of State and Office of Personnel Management, 2008 M.S.P.B. 146, that affects preference eligibles who apply for federal positions having a maximum entry-age restriction. The Board decided that the agency's failure to waive the maximum entry-age requirements for Mr. 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.

        Based on the Board's decision in Isabella, qualified preference eligibles may now apply and be considered for vacancies regardless of whether they meet the maximum age requirements identified at 5 U.S.C. 3307. In order to determine whether it must waive a maximum entry-age requirement, an agency must first analyze the affected position to determine whether age is 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. 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.

        The same principles set forth above would apply to appointments to other types of positions for which the setting of maximum entry ages are authorized under 5 U.S.C. § 3307. These types of positions are: (1) firefighters, (2) air traffic controllers, (3) United States Park police, (4) nuclear materials couriers, and (5) customs and border patrol officers (subject to the Federal Employees etirement System, 5 U.S.C. § 8401 et seq. only).

            Law Enforcment is exampt from the most laws you speak of. Most big departments in Indiana have mandatory ongoing phisical agility tests. The Indiana Sate Police started it than it went from there. Indiana gets away with it by making it a condition of employment. Every two years there is an assesment and why shouldnt there be? I dont need some fat *** that cant tie his own shoes walking around in my uniform making us all look bad lol. If you cant manage your own agility how do you expect to manage other peoples lives on a daily basis.
