The U.S. Department of Labor has announced the Final Rule implementing the Honoring Investments in Recruiting and Employing (HIRE) American Military Veterans Act (HIRE Vets Act), signed by President Trump in May.
The rule establishes a new HIRE Vets Medallion Program, which will recognize qualifying companies with a HIRE Vets Medallion Award, for their commitment to recruit, employ, and retain America’s military service veterans.

In 2018, the Department will conduct a limited HIRE Vets Medallion Program Demonstration—more details will be available soon so be sure to visit www.hirevets.gov for updates.

The HIRE Vets Medallion Program is an opportunity for companies, of any size, to signal their commitment to employing veterans. Throughout the coming year, the ongoing investments companies make in our veterans will count when they apply for the HIRE Vets Medallion Award in 2019.
