Chapter 425 Laws of 2005 has been amended to include two new subparts:
Subpart (2) provides that any member of the organized militia or reserves who, because of active military duty other than for training purposes, missed the application filing for an examination and as a result is deprived of the opportunity to compete in an examination, shall be given a special military make-up exam. The make-up examination is to be administered under the terms and conditions set by the State Department of Civil Service or municipal civil service agency.
Subpart (3) provides that any member of the organized militia or reserves who, because of active military duty other than for training purposes, misses the application deadline for a scheduled examination and who returns from such duty prior to the administration of such examination be granted a waiver of the application requirement and be allowed to complete in the examination. However, it is the State’s opinion that a candidate who failed to file a timely application due to military duty is not necessarily entitled to be tested on a walk-in basis. Even if the candidate is available on the scheduled test date, he or she may be required to compete according to alternate test date procedures because of the potential administrative difficulties.
