OFCCP Announces New Veteran Hiring Benchmark

On June 15, 2016, OFCCP announced its 2016 Vietnam Era Veterans’ Readjustment Assistance Act (VEVRAA) Benchmark. The new benchmark is 6.9%, slightly lower than the previous year’s 7% benchmark.

The VEVRAA Benchmark is the figure which federal contractors must use to assess the effectiveness of their outreach programs for the hiring of veterans. Contractors may either use the OFCCP’s national benchmark, or establish their own benchmark using applicable statistics and other metrics set forth in OFCCP’s regulations (41 CFR §60-300.45(b)(2)).
