Veteran Hiring Benchmark Change
The OFCCP’s veteran hiring benchmark has decreased again, from 5.9% to 5.7%. This updated percentage should be used on Affirmative Action Plans dated March 31, 2020 or later. Federal contractors should take note, as the OFCCP is currently conducting VEVRAA focused reviews. It is possible that the agency will look carefully at the date of the affirmative action plans to determine to which benchmark percentage they will compare the establishment’s hiring rates. Contact Arbor with any questions about this change, or about ways to improve your veteran hiring.
