OFCCP Protects Veterans from Discrimination – Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs
OFCCP Protects Veterans from Discrimination The Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) enforces the affirmative action provisions of the Vietnam Era Veterans’ Readjustment Assistance Act of 1974. This law, sometimes referred to as VEVRAA or Section 4212, requires employers doing business with the Federal government to take steps to recruit, hire and promote protected veterans.
It also makes it illegal for these companies to discriminate against protected veterans when making employment decisions on hiring, firing, pay, benefits, job assignments, promotions, layoffs, training, and other employment related activities.
If you are a veteran and believe you were discriminated against in your job, or in applying for a job, because of your status as a protected veteran please contact us at: the u.s. department of labor Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs Washington, D.C. 20210 1-800-397-6251 – OFCCP-Public@dol.gov www.dol.gov/ofccp
