Recruiting Veterans and Respecting Their Rights


This Veterans Day, we encourage employers to take a moment to evaluate their policies and practices with respect to veterans, service members and their families.

Employers should also take care to remember that applicable federal and state laws provide certain protections for veterans, service members and their families.

Incentives for Actively Recruiting Protected Veterans and Their Families
