In order to capture this information in Banner, the University invites employees who believe they are protected veterans to identify themselves by completing the Voluntary Self-Identification of Protected Veterans form. Completion of this form, which is completely voluntary, will allow UA to capture employees’ status as a veteran so that reports to federal agencies are accurate. The form is available on the Employee tab in MyBama under Employee Services. If you have questions, please contact Amy Heatherly at firstname.lastname@example.org or 348-6081.
