The Department of Labor has published a rule revising the regulations that implement the Vietnam Era Veterans' Readjustment Assistance Act of 1974 (VEVRAA) to incorporate amendments to the VEVRAA made by the Veterans' Benefit and Health Care Improvement Act of 2000 (VBHCIA).

The VEVRAA requires Federal contractors to report annually the number of employees and new hires that belong to the categories of veterans protected under the statute. The VBHCIA amended the VEVRAA by extending the protections of that law to a new category of veterans called "recently separated veterans."
