Everything You Need To Know About Being A Protected Veteran
The VEVRAA prohibits discrimination against employees based on their veteran status. This means that if you belong to one of the categories of protected veterans covered under this law, your employer cannot treat you unfairly due to your military background or any service-connected disability. Examples of such unfair treatment may include denying promotions, unequal pay compared to non-veteran colleagues, or wrongful termination without just cause. By understanding your rights as a protected veteran within the workplace environment, you can ensure fair treatment from employers while also contributing positively towards diversity initiatives aimed at supporting members from various backgrounds within our society.
