Governor Proclaims November as Hire A Veteran Month

On Thursday, Gov. Rick Snyder declared November as Hire a Veteran Month and announced a series of upcoming career fairs for veterans, urging Michigan employers to do more to help returning veterans make the transition from military service to employment.

“Veterans have been tried and tested in the toughest of circumstances,” Snyder said. “Michigan employers who hire these returning heroes benefit from both the leadership and technical skills veterans bring to the job, as well as a wide range of federal and state incentives designed to defray costs and lower their tax burden.”

The governor’s Hire a Veteran Month proclamation, issued in conjunction with the Veterans’ Services Division of the Michigan Workforce Development Agency, points to a variety of programs designed to benefit both veterans and the employers who hire them.

The Vocational Rehabilitation & Employment Program is a federal program that offers incentives to employers that hire veterans with service-connected disabilities. Michigan’s Work Opportunity Tax Credit Program provides up to $9,600 in tax credits for hiring certain veterans.
