The Vietnam Era Veterans' Readjustment Assistance Act of 1974, as amended (VEVRAA) prohibits discrimination against specified categories of veterans protected by the Act and requires affirmative action in the employment of such veterans.
OFCCP monitors compliance with these equal employment opportunity laws and their corresponding affirmative action requirements primarily through compliance evaluations, during which a compliance officer examines the contractor's affirmative action program and employment practices. OFCCP also investigates complaints filed by individuals alleging discrimination by Federal contractors and subcontractors on the basis of race, color, sex, religion, national origin, disability or status as a protected veteran.
