OFCCP Posts New Infographic to Help Veterans Determine Their Status Under VEVRAA
Per an email communication sent out earlier today from the Department of Labor (DOL), the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP), in response to requests from the veteran community, developed a new “Am I a Protected Veteran?” infographic. Recent changes to the Vietnam Era Veterans’ Readjustment Assistance Act of 1974 (VEVRAA) regulations require contractors to invite applicants to voluntarily self-identify as protected veterans at both the pre-offer and post-offer phases of the application process. The new infographic is designed to help veterans quickly and easily navigate the “protected veteran” categories to determine their eligibility for coverage under VEVRAA.
The infographic is available for download on OFCCP’s Web site at: http://www.dol.gov/ofccp/posters/Infographics/ProtectedVet_InfoGraphic_JRFQA508c.pdf
