VETS-100 Reporting Deadline September 30

Last Updated: October 4, 2010


The VETS-100 and VETS-100A Reports were due from certain contractors and subcontractors with current federal contracts on September 30, 2010 as the Department of Labor (DOL) has not extended the deadline this year as it had for 2009.

Background

Contractors and subcontractors with a current federal contract of $25,000 or more that was entered into before December 1, 2003 or a current federal contract of $100,000 or more that was modified or entered into on or after December 1, 2003 must generally file a VETS-100 by September 30 of each year. Contractors or subcontractors with either of the following must instead file the VETS-100A Report by the same date: a current federal contract in the amount of $100,000 or more that was entered into on or after December 1, 2003; a current federal contract as modified in the amount of $100,000 or more that was modified on or after December 1, 2003. Those contractors and subcontractors with a current federal contract of $25,000 or more that was entered into before December 1, 2003 (and not modified on or after that date) and a current federal contract in the amount of $100,000 or more that was entered into or modified on or after December 1, 2003 must submit both the VETS-100 and the VETS-100A Reports.

The VETS-100 Report relates the number of employees and new hires during the reporting period who are special disabled veterans; veterans of the Vietnam era; other protected veterans (veterans who served on active duty in the U.S. military during a war or in a campaign or expedition for which a campaign badge is awarded); and recently separated veterans (veterans within 12 months from discharge or release from active duty).

The VETS-100A Report relates the number of employees and new hires during the reporting period who are disabled veterans; other protected veterans (veterans who served on active duty in the U.S. military during a war or in a campaign or expedition for which a campaign badge is awarded); Armed Forces service medal veterans (veterans who, while serving on active duty in the Armed Forces, participated in a United States military operation for which an Armed Forces service medal was awarded pursuant to Executive Order 12985); and recently separated veterans (veterans within 36 months of discharge or release from active duty).

The other significant difference between the VETS-100 and VETS-100A Report forms is in the job categories.

These reports may be filed electronically via internet or by submitting a diskette. The reporting options and other information may be found at the Department of Labor’s website at https://vets100.vets.dol.gov/.
