Section 1, Civil Service Rule IX, is amended to read as follows:

  1. A person separated without delinquency or misconduct from a competitive position or from a position which he entered by transfer or promotion from a competitive position or to accept another appointment in the executive civil service may be reinstated subject to the following limitations:

    (a) Unless otherwise provided hereinafter a person may be reinstated only to the department or independent government establishment from which separated and upon requisition made within one year from the date of his separation.

    (b) A person who has served in the Civil War or the War with Spain and was honorably discharged or his widow or an army nurse of either war, separated heretofore from the competitive classified service, may be reinstated in the department or independent establishment from which separated without time limit. If hereafter separated, reinstatement may be made within five years from the date of separation.

    (c) A soldier, sailor, marine, or army nurse of the War with Germany formerly in the competitive classified service may be reinstated in any part of the competitive classified service within five years from the date of honorable discharge from the military service if he has the required fitness to perform the duties of the position to which his reinstatement is sought.

    (d) The widow of a veteran of the War with Germany formerly in the competitive classified service who was the wife of such veteran while he was in the military service may be reinstated in any part of the competitive classified service within five years from the date of termination of her husband's military service by death or honorable discharge.

    (e) No person in any of the foregoing groups may be reinstated to a position requiring an examination different from that required in the position from which he was separated without passing an appropriate examination.


Section 2 of Rule IX remains unchanged.


The Executive Order of July 18, 1918, providing for the reinstatement of government employees who left the classified civil service to enter the military or naval service during the War with Germany, and the Executive Order of February 7, 1919, amending section 1 of Civil Service Rule IX (erroneously referred to as Rule XI), are hereby revoked.


This Executive Order is recommended by the Civil Service Commission to harmonize and consolidate provisions relating to the reinstatement of veterans, their widows, and army nurses.
