Applicability of EEOC Proposed Final Rule to the Department of Veterans Affairs

Headnotes: 

The Veterans’ Benefits Act is not inconsistent with the proposed Equal Employment Opportunity Commission final rule on hearings for federal employees’ EEO complaints, and therefore the Department of Veterans Affairs would be subject to the rule to the same extent as other executive branch agencies.
