Federal contractors that employ veterans have until October 31, 2012 to file the VETS-100 or VETS-100A report, thanks to a recent extension provided by the Veteran's Employment and Training Service (VETS) of the US Department of Labor (DOL). The prior deadline was September 30, 2012. All paper reports and electronic files received by VETS by October 31, 20102 will be included as part of the 2012 filing cycle and will not be considered late.
The Vietnam Era Veteran's Readjustment Act of 1972 (VEVRAA) addresses employment of veterans and ensures that veterans have equal employment opportunity in the workforce. The VETS-100 and VETS-100A reports allow federal government contractors to report their efforts towards hiring and employing veterans to VETS.
A VETS-100 report must be submitted by a federal government contractor with a current government contract or subcontract of $25,000 or more entered into before December 1, 2003, which has not been modified after that date. A VETS-100A report must be submitted if the federal government contractor has a current government contract or subcontract of $100,000 or more created or modified on or after December 1, 2003.
The filing deadline for Employer Information Reports (EEO-1 Reports) to be filed with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) remains September 30, 2012. Private employers with 100 or more employees, and federal contractors and subcontractors with 50 or more employees and contracts (or subcontracts) valued at $50,000 or more are subject to EEO-1 Reporting requirements.
