Service members and veterans have made great sacrifices to guarantee the freedoms and liberties that all Americans enjoy. And service members and veterans themselves are also guaranteed rights, such as the right to be free from discrimination in civilian employment. This document helps explain where to get help if you are a service member or veteran and you feel that you have been discriminated against in employment because of your military status, veteran status, or another protected basis.
