Recruitment and Hiring Strategies: Disabled Veterans


When military personnel transition to civilian employment, America’s businesses stand to benefit. Across all industries, veterans are a ready source of qualified, committed job candidates with transferable skills proven in real world situations. They grasp new concepts quickly and work well both independently and as part of a team—highly valued skills in any workplace.

Employers who hire disabled veterans may qualify for certain tax incentives.  For employers who are federal contractors and subcontractors, there are additional reasons to proactively recruit veterans— doing so can help them achieve their goals under the Vietnam Era Veterans’ Readjustment Assistance Act as well as Section 503 of the Rehabilitation Act. Through a range of initiatives, the Federal Government has also pledged to be a model employer of veterans, including those with disabilities.

Regardless of the nature of employer, the frequently asked questions found on this site may assist in understanding issues related to hiring disabled veterans.
