‘Hire More Heroes’ Offers Veterans Boost for Small Business Jobs

January 30, 2015

In early January, House Republicans announced the re-introduction of the Hire More Heroes Act, which would incentivize small businesses to hire military retirees, reservists and veterans with disabilities. The bill permits small businesses without health plans to hire any person covered by Tricare or receiving care from the Department of Veterans Affairs without that person counting towards the 50 full-time worker threshold at which employers are required to offer health insurance for employees. Individuals could continue to receive health care through TRICARE instead of through their employer.
