The VEVRAA prohibits covered federal contractors and subcontractors from discriminating in employment against protected veterans and requires affirmative action to recruit, hire, promote, and retain these veterans. The regulations compel contractors that are required to develop a written affirmative action program to also establish annual hiring benchmarks for protected veterans. The benchmarks may be based on the national percentage of veterans in the civilian labor force or through an individualized benchmark using the OFCCP’s five factor method detailed on the VEVRAA Benchmark Database.
Covered contractors must compare the percentage of protected veteran employees in each of their establishments to the hiring benchmark set for that establishment to assess their veteran outreach and recruitment efforts. Further, contractors must maintain records related to their benchmark for three years.
