Leveraging an unprecedented public/private partnership with NASWA, Direct Compliance is a suite of programs and services that assists participating Members with 4212 VEVRAA/JVA compliance obligations.
Understanding 4212 Compliance
The Vietnam Era Veterans’ Readjustment Assistance Act of 1974 (VEVRAA)/Section 4212, as amended by the Jobs for Veterans Act of 2002 (JVA), requires covered federal contractors and subcontractors to list their employment openings with “an appropriate employment service delivery system.”
Per federal regulations, your jobs must reach state workforce agency job banks or the appropriate local employment service delivery system. Practically, this means your jobs must reach One Stop Career Centers (state employment offices funded by Wagner Peyser).
This includes outreach to:
- Employment Services (ES) staff
- Disabled Veterans Outreach Programs (DVOPs)
- Local Veterans Employment Representatives (LVERs)
- State Workforce Agency Job Banks
Delivering unmatched 4212 compliance
DirectEmployers provides the most comprehensive 4212 VEVRAA/JVA compliance assistance through the National Labor Exchange (NLX) initiative — formed through our exclusive partnership with the National Association of State Workforce Agencies (NASWA), a non-profit association representing all state workforce agencies, plus those in the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and Guam.
DirectEmployers Association Member jobs are indexed directly from their corporate career sites and made available to veterans through the NLX, which assists participating Members with compliance according to Section 4212 regulations. DirectEmployers Association surpasses minimum requirements distributing jobs to appropriate delivery systems in three ways:
- The National Labor Exchange providing an automated job feed to state job banks.
- Veteran Distribution – a unique service of the NLX which feeds jobs to over 3,000 local offices, including the appropriate employment service delivery system, and records are maintained for each transaction.
- US.jobs providing employers a nonprofit, public service employment network, where employers increase their recruiting reach to vast cultures and population segments. Including but not limited to: Veterans.jobs.
Working with state workforce agencies
DirectEmployers Association is closely working with state workforce agencies on the NLX through the NLX Operations Committee, a group formed to direct our unique public-private partnership.
