Protected Veteran Self-ID Form

Alisha S. - Sep 06, 2019
Back to Ask the Experts

Could you please link to the form that is most updated for Veterans to self-identify post-offer?

Also, the version of the form we have provides an option for a non-protected veteran to identify. I am receiving information that we should not be identifying those who are veterans but are non-protected. Is this accurate?

Our concern specifically is if we should be asking this question:
I am NOT a protected veteran. (I served in the military but do not fall into any veteran categories listed above)
***categories above are:

Disabled veteran
Recently separated veteran
Active wartime or campaign badge veteran
Armed forces service medal veteran

Thank you!
