Government Contractors: Rule Change Coming to VETS-100 Filing

Government Contractors: Rule Change Coming to VETS-100 Filing

VETSChanges are on the horizon regarding the requirement that government/federal contractors file the annual VETS-1oo form. Per the Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM), in accordance with the US DOL Veterans’ Employment and Training Service (VETS), the VETS-100 form has become obsolete. VETS believes the form is obsolete as it only applies to government contracts and subcontracts that were entered into before 12/1/03. It is unlikely that any of these contracts still exist.

What this means for Employers

Several changes proposed by the DOL would actually reduce work for employers.

Current rules under VEVRAA state that qualifying government/federal contractors must file the VETS-100 and/or VETS-100A form by September 30th or each calendar year. The VETS-100 form covers Vietnam-era veterans among other veteran groups and applies only to federal contracts from before December 1, 2003.

  • The proposed rule would rescind the VETS-100 requirement.
  • The VETS-100A requirement would remain, but the report format would change.  It would be called the VETS-4212 Report.

When will VETS-4212 go into effect?

The proposed rule is currently in the comment period, with a suggestion by the DOL of a one year implementation phase for the new report requirement. Stay tuned to the FosterThomas HR Blog for updates on this proposed rule to VETS-100, VETS-100A and introduction of VETS-4212.
