The Jobs for Veterans Act (P.L. 107-288) established the requirement for “performance incentive awards for quality employment training and placement services” to be administered by the State of New York. The intent of the program is to encourage the improvement and modernization of employment, training and placement services for veterans, and recognize eligible employees for excellence in the provision of such services, or for having made demonstrable improvements in the provision of services to veterans.
Refer to Veterans’ Program letter (VPL) 08-03 for more information on eligibility and implementation of the awards.
The Veterans’ Program Incentive Awards are not pensionable and will not be included in the calculation of overtime.
