Oct. 31, 2012, is the deadline for submitting the Veterans’ Employment and Training Service (VETS)-100 and VETS-100A reports.
The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) pushed back the deadline from Sept. 30, 2012.
The DOL uses the annual reports to collect and compile data on the employment of veterans with federal contractors and subcontractors, as required under the Vietnam Era Veterans’ Readjustment Act of 1972.
The Jackson Lewis Workplace Resource Center points out that the reports are similar to the Employer Information Report EEO-1.
The DOL’s VETS website lists frequently asked questions and gives a bulleted list of the differences between the VETS-100 and 100A reports, including which type of contractors are covered by the VETS-100 reporting requirements and which ones are covered by the VETS-100A reporting requirements. The VETS-100A Report adopts the job categories used on the revised EEO-1 Report, while the VETS-100 Report has a single Officials and Managers job category, according to the DOL.
Individuals with questions may contact the VETS-100 office at VETS100firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 866-237-0275.
