The Department of Labor (DoL) is currently accepting applications for the beta phase of the HIRE Vets Medallion Program to recognize employers who hire and retain veterans as employees. This year’s awards, specifically titled The HIRE Vets Medallion Program Demonstration, will be used to finalize the permanent awards program beginning in 2019. Employers wishing to be recognized can apply directly at HireVets.gov and fill out an electronic application. The application period opened Feb. 2 and will close April 30, 2018, or after the first 300 applications are received. For more information about the awards program and other services, read the VA VAntage Point Blog, visit the VETS website, follow @VETS_DOL, and join the conversation #HIREVets.
