VETS-100/100A Filing Deadline for Federal Contractors Extended to Nov. 30
 

The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) recently announced a one-time extension of the deadline for covered federal contractors to file the VETS-100 and VETS 100-A reports because of technical problems with a newly proposed electronic reporting system.  The reports detail the number of qualified covered veterans in the contractors’ workforces, by job category and hiring location, as well as the number of new hires during the 12-month reporting period who are qualified covered veterans.  DOL had planned to begin accepting electronic submissions of the reports beginning on August 1, 2011.  The new system is expected to be available beginning on October 1, extending the reporting deadline to November 30.

The Vietnam Era Veterans’ Readjustment Assistance Act of 1974, as amended, requires certain federal contractors and their subcontractors to file VETS-100 and/or VETS-100A reports with DOL by September 30 of each year, following a calendar year in which the contractor held a government contract or subcontract.  Which report to file depends on when the contract that triggers the reporting requirement was entered into or modified.  Contractors with a current government contract or subcontract in the amount of $25,000 or more that was entered into prior to December 1, 2003, must file the VETS-100 report, while contractors with a government contract or subcontract in the amount of $100,000 or more that was entered into or modified on or after December 1, 2003, must file the VETS-100A report.  Contractors must file both the VETS-100 and VETS-100A reports if they have covered contracts or subcontracts entered into before December 1, 2003, and also have covered contracts or subcontracts entered into or modified on or after December 1, 2003.

A separate report that is often confused with the submission of the VETS-100 and VETS-100A reports is the EEO-1 report, which summarizes workforce demographics in general.  The EEO-1 report is not affected by the extended deadline and must still be submitted by covered contractors by September 30, 2011.

For more information on the VETS-100 report, VETS 100-A report and EEO-1 report, visit the Labor and HR Topical Resources page on the AGC website.  The primary category is “EEO.”  The secondary category is “Affirmative Action EEO.”
