Time is moving quickly so we wanted to take a moment to remind you that VETS-4212 Reports must be filed between August 1 and September 30.
The U.S. Department of Labor's Veterans' Employment and Training Service (VETS) and Office of Federal Contractor Compliance Programs (OFCCP) have supported affirmative actions to employ and advance in employment covered veterans since 2008. As legislatively mandated under 38 U.S. Code Section 4212, codified at 41 CFR 61-300, contractors and subcontractors who enter into, or modify a contract or subcontract with the federal government, and whose contract meets the criteria set forth in the above legislation / regulations, are required to report annually on their affirmative action efforts in employing veterans.
The VETS-4212 Report should be filed if a business has a current federal government contract or subcontract worth $150,000 or more, regardless of the number of employees.
As a reminder the "reporting period" is the 12 months preceding the selected payroll period ending date. Contractors should select a date in the applicable year between July 1 and August 31 that represents the end of a payroll period. Alternatively, you can use December 31 of the previous year to align with EEO-1 reporting.
