VETS-4212 Deadline Fast Approaching

The deadline for filing your 2018 VETS-4212 reports is fast approaching, on September 30th. At this time, federal contractors and subcontractors with a contract or subcontract of $150,000 or more are required to file these reports.

As a reminder, the Veterans’ Employment and Training Service (VETS) typically does not grant any extensions beyond September 30th. The official VETS-4212 “ending period” or snapshot date is the ending date of a pay period that falls completely within the timeframe of July 1st through August 31st. However, as we shared last year, VETS clarified that contractors are be able to file using a December 31, 2017 snapshot so that they can align the data collection with the EEO-1 survey and reduce the administrative burden.

If you should need further assistance on filing your VETS-4212 reports, you can contact VETS-4212 customer support at (866) 237-0275 or via email at
