The following information you provide New Leaf is completely voluntary. Please be aware that we are a not-for-profit, affirmative industry that values diversity and that gives preference in hiring to people with disabilities and veterans. Our set-aside federal contracts through the AbilityOne Program (Javits-Wagner-O’Day Act) require that 75% of all direct labor hours go to people with verifiable disabilities.
