This employer is a Government contractor 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: (1)
disabled veterans; (2) recently separated veterans; (3) active duty wartime or campaign badge
veterans; and (4) Armed Forces service medal veterans. These classifications are defined as follows:
A “disabled veteran” is one of the following:
a veteran of the U.S. military, ground, naval or air service who is entitled to compensation (or

A “recently separated veteran” means any veteran during the three-year period beginning on the
date of such veteran's discharge or release from active duty in the U.S. military, ground,
naval, or air service.
An “active duty wartime or campaign badge veteran” means a veteran who served on active duty in
the U.S. military, ground, naval or air service during a war, or in a campaign or expedition for
which a campaign badge has been authorized under the laws administered by the Department of
An “Armed forces service medal veteran” means a veteran who, while serving on active duty in the
U.S. military, ground, naval or air service, participated in a United States military operation
for which an Armed Forces service medal was awarded pursuant to Executive Order 12985.
Protected veterans may have additional rights under USERRA—the Uniformed Services Employment and
Reemployment Rights Act. In particular, if you were absent from employment in order to perform
service in the uniformed service, you may be entitled to be reemployed by your employer in the
position you would have obtained with reasonable certainty if not for the absence due to service.
