The University of North Carolina at Charlotte is committed to equal opportunity and affirmative action in all aspects of employment for qualified protected veterans. We ask that you please consider completing this Invitation to Voluntarily Self-Identify Veteran Status to help us fulfill our commitments to equal opportunity and affirmative action and to meet our obligations as a government contractor under 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). VEVRAA requires us to take affirmative action to employ and advance in employment protected veterans.
While the University is required by VEVRAA to submit an annual report to the U.S. Department of Labor identifying the total number of employees who are “protected veterans” based on the categories listed below, submission of this information is voluntary on your part and refusal to provide it will not subject you to any adverse treatment. The information provided will be used only in a manner consistent with VEVRAA.
This infographic is designed to help veterans quickly navigate the “protected veteran” categories to determine their eligibility for coverage under the Vietnam Era Veterans’ Readjustment Assistance Act of 1974 (VEVRAA).
