Date   Sep 26, 2012

The Department of Labor's Veteran's Employment and Training Services (VETS) has announced that it is extending the deadline for the submission of VETS-100/VETS-100A reports from September 30 to October 31, 2012.

Executive Summary:  The Department of Labor's Veteran's Employment and Training Services (VETS) has announced that it is extending the deadline for the submission of VETS-100/VETS-100A reports from September 30 to October 31, 2012.

The Vietnam Era Veterans' Readjustment and Assistance Act of 1974, as amended, requires that federal contractors covered by the Act's affirmative action provisions submit annual reports to the Secretary of Labor regarding the number of protected veteran employees and new hires in their workforce. The regulations implementing this law require these reports, known as the VETS-100 or VETS-100A, be submitted by September 30 each year.

VETS posted an announcement on its web site stating that it is extending the deadline for submitting these reports to October 31, 2012.  According to the announcement, all paper reports and electronic files received at the Service Desk by October 31 will be included as part of the 2012 filing cycle and will not be considered late.  Filing information is available on the VETS web site at:  http://www.dol.gov/vets/vets100filing.htm.
