    SHRM Olympia is proud to present Mr. Wayne Jones. Wayne is employed with Thurston County as a Human Resources Analyst and Civil Service Assistant Chief Examiner. He previously worked for the Washington State Employment Security Department as a Local Veterans’ Employment Representative and Business Consultant, helping Veterans find high-paying and meaningful employment while assisting businesses in their recruitment, assessment, training, and selection processes. He is a US Army Retiree with extensive background in human resources management, organizational development, EEO/Affirmative Action, and training development and delivery. He holds a Master of Science degree in Human Resources Management and a Graduate Certificate  in Organizational Leadership.

    Wayne will be discussing the various laws governing veterans' preference in employment in Washington State. Knowing which laws apply and how to prefer veterans--as well as certain non-veterans--for employment is critical to complying with the law. In this presentation, attendees will learn to understand and be able to apply Veterans' Preference in one or more of the following circumstances:

    • Veterans' Preference when an examination is administered for public employment;
    • Veterans' Preference when no examination is administered for public employment; and
    • Veterans' Preference in private employment.
