RD669 - Report for 2019 Virginia Acts of Assembly from the Work Group to Support Employment of Disabled Veterans

Executive Summary:

Pursuant to Item 81N, Chapter 854 of the 2019 Virginia Acts of Assembly the Department of Human Resource Management (DHRM) was tasked to work with the Department of Veterans Services (DVS) to identify and promote policies to support the hiring and continued employment of disabled veterans in the state workforce.

DHRM, a V3 certified employer, has a long standing alliance with DVS to support their directorate of education, transition and employment of veterans. Although the Commonwealth has a number of established policies and processes to benefit veterans, additional measures can be taken to enhance our standing as an employer of choice for this talent pool.
