America's Veterans, reservists and National Guard members may be entitled to certain workplace rights and preferences.
DOL's Veterans' Employment and Training Service (VETS) administers and enforces the Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act (USERRA), which prohibits all employers from discriminating against an individual based on his or her status as a past or present member of the uniformed services.
In addition, DOL's Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) promotes equal opportunity in hiring and employment for qualified disabled Veterans, Vietnam-era Veterans, recently separated Veterans and Veterans who served on active duty in a war or during a campaign or expedition for which a campaign badge has been authorized.
