Today, August 28th, 2013, the U.S. Department of Labor announced the release of two new rules to improve hiring and employment of veterans and people with disabilities. These rules update requirements under the Vietnam Era Veterans' Readjustment Assistance Act of 1974 (VEVRAA) and Section 503 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. The new VEVRAA rules require contractors to create and monitor benchmarks related to the employment of veterans, and the Section 503 rules introduce a hiring goal that 7% of individuals in each job group within contractor organizations be qualified individuals with disabilities.
