Selective Service and Veteran Status
Selective Service certification
Arizona law (Arizona Revised Statutes Section 38-201.D) provides that no person is eligible for employment with the State or any of its political subdivisions, including this employer, unless that person has registered with the United States Selective Service System, if required to do so by Federal law. Failure to truthfully answer these questions may be grounds for rejection of the employee’s application or dismissal from their employment.
The employee can register online at http://www.sss.gov/Processing/Processing.aspx?Function=R.
Protected Veteran Status
This university is a government contractor subject to the Vietnam Era Veterans’ Readjustment Assistance Act of 1974, as amended, which requires government contractors to take affirmative action to employ and advance in employment certain categories of veterans. These categories of protected veterans include Disabled Veterans, Active Duty Wartime or Campaign Badge Veterans, Armed Forces Service Medal Veterans, and Recently Separated Veterans. As a government contractor subject to VEVRAA, we are required to solicit this information from our employees.
We also maintain an affirmative action plan for protected veterans, designed to ensure that we recruit, hire, train, and promote all persons in all job titles, and ensure that all other personnel actions are administered, without regard to protected veteran status. We are also required to submit a report to the U.S. Department of Labor each year identifying the number of our employees belonging to each specific category of protected veterans.
The employee must elect a classification of protected veterans, if applicable.
