Reminder: VETS 4212 Due Sept. 30

September 27, 2022

The U.S. Department of Labor’s Veteran’s Employment and Training Service (VETS) and the Office of Federal Contractor Compliance Programs (OFCCP) focus on employing and advancement in employment of covered veterans. To support this effort, contractors and subcontractors that meet the filing requirements are required to submit annual reporting on their affirmative action efforts in employing veterans.


The VETS-4212 filing begins August 1 and ends September 30 each year.  All nonexempt federal contractors and subcontractors with $150,000 or more in federal contracts are required to file a VETS-4212 report annually.


The report must be submitted for the Company headquarters, and separately for each hiring location, and include data from July or August of the current year. If a contractor or subcontract or obtains a contract that meets the requirements to submit report(s), they are required to submit these report(s) within 120 days. Companies with federal contracts or subcontracts are required to keep three years of their VETS-4212 reports.


Employers who meet the requirements should prepare their data in preparation for the September 30, 2022, deadline.


Employers should review the DOL’s FAQ page for more information on VETS-4212 reporting requirements.
