New Infographic Helps Veterans Determine Their Status under VEVRAA

New Infographic Helps Veterans Determine Their Status under VEVRAA

WASHINGTON, D.C. – August 18, 2015 – (RealEstateRama) — The U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) recently released an infographic to help veterans determine whether or not they are protected under the Vietnam Era Veterans’ Readjustment Assistance Act of 1974 (VEVRAA).  Recent changes to 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. While OFCCP developed the infographic in response to requests from the veteran community, the tool may also be used by employers during the hiring process to help applicants determine their protected status.

The infographic is available for download here (link is external). For additional OFCCP information, tools and resources on the Section 503 regulations, click here (link is external).  For AGC resources, log in to the AGC website at www.agc.org, then go to the Labor & HR Topical Resources page at www.agc.org/topicalresources, and select the category “EEO” and subcategory “Affirmative Action/EEO.”  Note that AGC’s Affirmative Action Manual for Construction (link is external) includes information about OFCCP’s recently revised regulations under VEVRAA.
