Is there a federal program to help companies hire injured veterans?
Yes, the U.S. Department of Labor administers a program called the Recovery and Employment Assistance (REALifelines) Advisor. According to its website, "the REALifelines Advisor provides veterans and transitioning service members wounded and injured as a result of the War on Terrorism, and their family members, with the resources they need to successfully transition to a rewarding career. Developed by the U.S. Department of Labor's Veterans' Employment and Training Service (VETS), the REALifelines Advisor provides valuable information and access to contact information for one-on-one employment assistance and online resources to assist wounded and injured transitioning service members and veterans in their reintegration into the civilian workforce."
Companies interested in participating in this program should contact program administrators through the website.
