This employer is a Government contractor or subcontractor subject to the Vietnam Era Veterans' Readjustment Assistance Act of 1974, as amended by the Jobs for Veterans Act of 2002, 38 U.S.C. 4212 (VEVRAA), which requires Government contractors to take affirmative action to employ and advance in employment "protected veterans": (1) disabled veterans; (2) recently separated veterans; (3) active duty wartime or campaign badge veterans; and (4) Armed Forces service medal veterans.
This employer is subject to certain governmental recordkeeping and reporting requirements under VEVRAA. In order to comply with these requirements, we invite you to check the appropriate box below. Submission of this information is voluntary and refusal to provide it will not subject you to any adverse treatment. The information you provide will be kept confidential and will only be used in ways that are consistent with VEVRAA.
This employer is committed to the goal of equal opportunity in employment. To further this goal, this employer maintains an affirmative action program that includes policies and practices to assure non-discrimination and affirmative action for protected veterans.Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability
We are a federal contractor or subcontractor required by law to provide equal employment opportunity to qualified people with disabilities. We are also required to measure our progress toward having at least 7% of our workforce be individuals with disabilities. To do this, we must ask applicants and employees if they have a disability or have ever had a disability. Because a person may become disabled at any time, we ask all of our employees to update their information at least every five years.
Identifying yourself as an individual with a disability is voluntary, and we hope that you will choose to do so. Your answer will be maintained confidentially and not be seen by selecting officials or anyone else involved in making personnel decisions. Completing the form will not negatively impact you in any way, regardless of whether you have self-identified in the past. For more information about this form or the equal employment obligations of federal contractors under Section 503 of the Rehabilitation Act, visit the U.S. Department of Labor's Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) website
