Today, OFCCP updated the 2021 Annual Vietnam Era Veterans’ Readjustment Assistance Act (VEVRAA) hiring benchmark on the VEVRAA Hiring Benchmark Database. Effective on March 31, 2021, the new benchmark is 5.6%.
Looking for prior national percentages? The VEVRAA Hiring Benchmark Database displays a chart of the annual national percentage of veterans in the civilian labor force from prior years along with their effective dates.
State-level veteran availability data has also been updated in the VEVRAA Hiring Benchmark Database for federal contractors and subcontractors who calculate an individualized hiring benchmark using the five-factor method.
