Voluntary Applicant Veteran Self-Identification Form
This form invites applicants to self-identify as veterans under both the Vietnam Era Veterans' Readjustment Assistance Act (VEVRAA) and Oregon Veterans' Preference in Employment.
Under the Vietnam Era Veterans' Readjustment Assistance Act (VEVRAA), as amended, the University of Oregon is required to take affirmative action to employ and advance in employment veterans in the following classifications.
- A "disabled veteran" is one of the following:
- a veteran of the U.S. military, ground, naval or air service who is entitled to compensation (or who but for the receipt of military retired pay would be entitled to compensation) under laws administered by the Secretary of Veterans Affairs; or
- a person who was discharged or released from active duty because of a service-connected disability.
- A "recently separated veteran" means any veteran during the three-year period beginning on the date of such veteran's discharge or release from active duty in the U.S. military, ground, naval, or air service.
- An "active duty wartime or campaign badge veteran" means a veteran who served on active duty in the U.S. military, ground, naval or air service during a war, or in a campaign or expedition for which a campaign badge has been authorized under the laws administered by the Department of Defense.
- An "Armed forces service medal veteran" means a veteran who, while serving on active duty in the U.S. military, ground, naval or air service, participated in a United States military operation for which an Armed Forces service medal was awarded pursuant to Executive Order 12985.
If you believe you belong to any of the categories of protected veterans listed above, please indicate by checking the appropriate box below. Your Form DD-214 may help you make this determination. As a Government contractor subject to VEVRAA, we request this information in order to measure the effectiveness of the outreach and positive recruitment efforts we undertake pursuant to VEVRAA. Submission of this information is voluntary and refusal to provide it will not subject you to any adverse treatment. The information provided will be maintained confidentially and only be used in ways that are consistent with VEVRAA.
Under Oregon Veterans' Preference in Employment, certain veterans may be eligible for employment preference. If you are a veteran or disabled veteran and would like to apply for the preference afforded under the Oregon Veterans' Preference statute, please complete the Veteran Status section below and submit the required documentation (see Note below) by the application deadline or review date indicated in the position posting. If you are eligible for the veterans' preference, hiring departments will be notified of your status but will not receive this form or the supporting documentation. All eligible veterans are encouraged to apply for the Oregon Veterans Preference.
NOTE: Veterans' Preference, as required under Oregon law, will not be applied without the appropriate documentation. Supporting documentation (DD214/DD215 and, for Disabled Veterans, a copy of your veteran's disability preference letter from the Department of Veterans Affairs unless that information is included in the DD214/215 form) MUST be submitted to Human Resources. To receive preference in connection with this search, this documentation must be received by the review/closing date on the posting. Materials can be scanned and forwarded electronically to email@example.com, faxed to 541-346-2548, or be sent via regular mail to: Human Resources, 677 E. 12th Ave. Suite 400, 5210 University of Oregon, Eugene, OR 97403-5210.
