On Jan. 31, the Department of Labor Veterans Employment and Training Service (DOL-VETS) will begin accepting applications for the HIRE Vets Medallion Program Demonstration at www.hirevets.gov, where up to 300 employers can apply to participate. 

VETS will honor employers who make it a priority to invest in recruiting, employing, and retaining veterans. The HIRE Vets Medallion Award is based on transparent criteria and aims to honor all employers, from the smallest to the largest, who meet these standards. The example set by recipients of this award will serve as models for other employers committed to hiring and retaining veterans.
