Hire a Vet

  • Hiring Veterans

    When you employ veterans, you are employing a unique pool of employees who have demonstrated integrity, a commitment to excellence, a desire to do the best job possible and give you a clear edge on the competition. Veterans typically possess a level of training, maturity and discipline rare in the civilian workforce. Find out more about the great qualities and benefits that veterans can bring to your organization.

  • Work Opportunity Tax Credit Program

    The WOTC is available to private-for-profit employers who hire from specific targeted groups of people that have in the past experienced difficulty in securing employment. Under the VOW Act of 2011, tax credits for hiring veterans were temporarily expanded.

    More information for employers is available from the Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs.
