Identify as a Veteran
Duke is committed to offering equal opportunity in recruitment, hiring, appointment, and promotion to its employees and applicants for employment, without regard to disability or veteran status. Personnel policies are reviewed regularly to ensure that veterans and individuals with disabilities are given careful considerations for all jobs for which they qualify.
If you’re a veteran or a disabled individual, we invite you to share your status with Duke. Doing so will help us monitor and advance our equal opportunity policies. Submission of such information is voluntary, and declining to provide it will not subject you to adverse treatment. Duke keeps such information confidential, except as provided by law.
To self-identify as a veteran, please contact your payroll representative or Duke Human Resources at 919-684-5600. Alternatively, you may follow these steps:
- Log in to Duke@Work
- Under the “My Info” tab, click “My Profile”
- Click the link “Review and Update your Race, Ethnicity, Veteran and Disability Status”
