Breaking News: DOL Announces More Time for VETS-4212 Filing & Clarifies EEO-1 Filing Date

Federal contractors of any size that had at least one contract worth $150,000 (or a master purchase agreement with purchase orders of at least that amount) during calendar year 2016 still need to file a VETS-4212 form this year. The Department of Labor announced on September 15, 2017 that in light of the disruption caused by hurricanes Harvey and Irma “Federal contractors who file their VETS-4212 Reports by November 15, 2017 will not be cited for failure to file a timely Report or failure to comply with Federal regulations.” The form must be based on data from a payroll period between July 1, 2017 and August 31, 2017, and would have been due on September 30, 2017.

Employers with over 100 employees and many federal contractors must also file an EEO-1 form every year. Until this year, the EEO-1 was due on September 30 of each year. At least for the next year, the EEO-1 filing on race and gender is due on March 31, 2018. The DOL recently clarified the data dates for the EEO-1 filing. That report must be based on data gathered during a payroll period between October 1, 2017 and December 31, 2017.
