SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The VETS/USERRA/VP Form 1010 (VETS–1010 Form) is used to file complaints with the Department of Labor’s Veterans’ Employment and Training Service (VETS) under either the Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act (USERRA) or the laws and regulations related to Veterans’ Preference (VP) in Federal employment. On October 13, 1994, the Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act (USERRA), Public Law 103–353, 108 Stat. 3150 was signed into law. Contained in Title 38, U.S.C., 4301–4335, USERRA is the replacement for the Veterans’ Reemployment Rights (VRR) law. The purposes of USERRA laws and regulations are: To minimize disruption to the lives of persons who perform service in the uniformed services (including the National Guard and Reserves), as well as to their employers, their fellow employees, and their communities, by providing for prompt reemployment of such persons upon completion of such service; to encourage individuals to participate in non-career uniformed service by eliminating and minimizing the disadvantages to civilian careers and employment which can result from such service; and to prohibit discrimination in employment and acts of reprisal against persons because of their obligations in the uniformed services, prior service, intention to join the uniformed services, filing of a USERRA claim, seeking assistance concerning an alleged USERRA violation, testifying in PO 00000 Frm 00106 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 49549 a proceeding, or otherwise assisting in an investigation of a USERRA claim. The Veterans Employment Opportunities Act (VEOA) of 1998, Public Law 105–339, 112 Stat. 3182, contained in Title 5 U.S.C. 3330a– 3330c, authorizes the Secretary of Labor to provide assistance to preference eligible individuals who believe their rights under the veterans’ preference laws have been violated, and to investigate claims filed by those individuals. The purposes of veterans’ preference laws include: To provide preference for certain veterans over others in Federal hiring from competitive lists of applicants; to allow access and open up Federal job opportunities to veterans that might otherwise be closed to the public; to provide preference eligible veterans with preference over others in retention during reductions in force in Federal agencies. Four minor changes, listed below, were made to the VETS–1010 Form. We believe they will have no significant impact on the burden hours needed to collect required information and to complete the form. VETS now has an electronic complaint form, the VETS e1010, available on our Web site at: www.dol.gov/vets, and which may also be accessed via our USERRA and Veterans’ Preference elaws Advisors, available on our Web site at: http:// www.dol.gov/elaws/veterans.html. The e1010 may be completed and submitted electronically without having to download, print, and mail a signed hard copy to our Atlanta regional lead center. To ensure the continuity between the paper and electronic form, we propose changing the following sections on the VETS–1010 Form: Phone: (404) 562–2305 will be changed to: (866) 4–USA–DOL ((866)– 487–2365). Section I: Claimant Information, question #5 will be changed from: ‘‘Work Phone:’’ to: ‘‘Cell Phone:’’. Section II: Uniformed Service Information, the check boxes in question #8 (asking the claimant to designate in which branch of service he or she served) will be changed in order to be consistent with the data fields that are already incorporated in the e1010 version. Section IV: Claim Information, the labels and content of questions #20 and #21 (asking the claimant to indicate the issues involved in the claim) will be changed in order to be consistent with the data fields that are already incorporated in the e1010 version.
