(The Governor's Programs to Hire Persons/Veterans with Disabilities)

If the Department of Civil Service has determined you are eligible for the Workers With Disabilities Program (Section 55-b or 55-c of Civil Service Law,) you are eligible to apply for positions that can be filled by meeting open competitive minimum qualifications. You can apply for all job vacancies listed under the heading "Positions Open to 55-b/55-c Candidates" for which you meet the minimum qualifications.

Notes:

Applications must be received in the Bureau of Personnel by the filing deadlines. Late applications may not be considered.

Salary Grade: When multiple salary grades or equivalents are mentioned, the appointment level is dependent up on the qualifications of the candidate selected.

Appointment Status: Where multiple appointment status is given, the appointment status will be dependent upon the rights of the candidate selected in accordance with Civil Service Law. Perm = Permanent; Cont = Contingent Permanent; Prov = Provisional; Temp = Temporary.

Permanent DEC employees assigned to Environmental Facilities Corporation are eligible for lateral transfer and promotional appointment to vacancies that occur in all divisions and regions.

Positions requiring a CDL (commercial driver's license) are subject to the Federal Omnibus Transportation Employee Testing Act (OTETA) of 1991 which requires that employees be tested for alcohol and/or drug use. Candidates who receive an offer of employment will be tested on a pre-employment basis prior to starting the job.

If you have any comments, suggestions or questions about this page, send them to the Posting Responses email box

FAQ's

Q. Why are there typically few or no job listings open for the general public to apply?
A. Most positions are filled by eligible lists resulting from examination in accordance with Civil Service Law. The position(s) that are listed as Open to Candidates That Meet the Minimum Qualifications are for job vacancies where no viable eligible list exists or use of an eligible list is not required by law.

Q. How do I get on an eligible list for positions at DEC?
A. To find out about the civil service process and how to get on an eligible list for positions in the Department of Environmental Conservation, review the information on Civil Service Basics and DEC Examination Announcements.

Q. What is the Workers With Disabilities Program (55-b/55-c Program)?
A. Section 55-b and 55-c of Civil Service Law permits the appointment of certain disabled individuals to positions that are filled by open-competitive examination where the examination is waived for the individual. The individual must meet the open competitive minimum qualifications and be able to perform the essential duties of the position. Complete information on the Workers With Disabilities Program (leaving DEC's website) is available from the Department of Civil Service.
