Today OFCCP joins Americans across the country in celebrating the spouses of our nation’s service members and honoring the significant sacrifices they make.

OFCCP is passionate about being a resource and advocate for military spouses in the workplace. All of us owe a great debt to military spouses, and OFCCP is doing our part to support Americans who give so much to our country.

Here’s what you need to know about what we’re doing for military spouses:

It is unlawful for a federal contractor to discriminate in employment against a qualified individual who the contractor knows to be the spouse of a protected veteran, and OFCCP has specific protections in place to protect military spouses from workplace discrimination.

It is the policy of the Department of Labor to actively reduce barriers to employment faced by military spouses. You can click here to learn more about relevant programs.
