Statement of Policy

As a recipient of federal funds, SUNY Plattsburgh is subject to Section 402 of the Vietnam Era Veterans Readjustment Assistance Act of 1974. SUNY Plattsburgh is taking affirmative action to employ and advance in employment qualified disabled and Vietnam Era veterans. Disabled veterans or veterans of the Vietnam Era, should furnish the Human Resource Office with a copy of their military record, discharge papers or other relevant documentation. Furnishing this information is voluntary; failure to provide it will not subject veterans to any penalty.

Information obtained concerning disabled and Vietnam Era veterans shall be kept confidential except that supervisors and administrators may be informed of the restrictions on the work or duties of disabled or Vietnam Era veterans and of the necessary accommodations.

SUNY Plattsburgh has developed a program to continue its efforts to employ and offer advancement opportunities to qualified disabled and Vietnam Era veterans. In implementing this Program, SUNY Plattsburgh will adhere to its policy of not discriminating against qualified disabled and Vietnam Era veterans in all personnel actions including appointments, upgrading, demotions, transfers, recruitment or recruitment advertising, layoffs, terminations, rates of pay or other terms of compensation and selection for training.

Any disabled or Vietnam Era veteran who believes that he or she is being discriminated against in any personnel action because of his or her status should discuss the matter with his or her immediate supervisor or appropriate administrative representative. Further, such complaint may be put in writing and forwarded to the Director of Human Resources, Kehoe Building, Room 916.
