The U.S. Department of Labor is launching the HIRE Vets Medallion Program Demonstration, an effort that will recognize up to 300 employers for their investments in recruiting, employing, and retaining our nation’s veterans.
The program utilizes the requirements of the Honoring Investments in Recruiting and Employing American Military Veterans Act of 2017 (HIRE Vets Act) signed by President Donald Trump in May 2017 to determine awardees.
The program will recognize large, medium, and small employers at two levels, platinum or gold, depending on the criteria they meet.
Program demonstration applications will be available on Jan. 31, 2018, online at www.hirevets.gov. There is no application fee and is limited to the first 300 applications across all categories (large, medium, and small employers).
Any employer with at least one employee on staff is eligible to apply.
Employers seeking further information should visit www.hirevets.gov for updates, or contact HIREVETS@dol.gov
