In response to contractor inquiries, OFCCP has posted two Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) regarding the new VETS-4212 reporting form and the requirement to invite voluntary self-identification of protected veteran status under the Vietnam Era Veterans’ Readjustment Assistance Act (VEVRAA). One FAQ addresses whether contractors must continue to invite self-identification by category of protected veteran at the post-offer stage. While the other FAQ addresses contractors’ ability to choose to continue to invite self-identification by category of protected veteran.
The FAQs include General Information, Effective Date and Compliance Schedule, Overview of the New VEVRAA Regulations, Compliance Assistance and Education, and Implementation Questions. All FAQs can be found on the OFCCP Web site by click the button below. New and updated items are denoted with symbols.
VETS-4212 Report (Formerly the VETS-100A Report)
As of 10/27/14, the VETS-100A Report is now called the VETS-4212 Report. The VETS-100 Report is no longer needed. The Veterans’ Employment and Training Service (VETS) replaced the VETS-100A form with a new VETS-4212 form. The new form requires federal contractors to report aggregate data on the number of protected veterans that were newly hired and the number they employed. This is different from the previous requirement that contractors report the data by the number of veterans in each of the individual categories for protected veterans.
