Selective Service Registration

DOL Opportunities Are Open banner

The Defense Authorization Act of 1986 prohibits any male born after December 31, 1959, from being appointed to a position in an executive agency of the Federal Government if he has knowingly and willfully failed to register with the Selective Service System. As a condition of employment, male applicants born after December 31, 1959, must certify that they have registered with the Selective Service System, or are exempt from having to do so under the Selective Service Law.
