38 U.S.C. § 3683 Waiver Requests
38 U.S.C. § 3683 was amended on September 29, 2018. The prior version of the Federal law requires VA to remove employees who have certain connections to for-profit educational institutions, if those connections began prior to September 29, 2018. However, if no detriment results in such connections, VA leadership may grant a waiver that allows the employee to remain employed. VA will post proposed waivers below for 30 days, and the public may comment on any proposed waiver. All comments will be forwarded to the VA official who proposes to grant the waiver.
