The fall of every year brings the obligation for federal contractors and subcontractors to file annual reports with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and the Veterans Employment and Training Service (VETS). While this has become something of an annual ritual, organizations that may be reviewed by the U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) should give special attention to these reports during 2015. There are changes to the report due to VETS, and there are new ramifications for the manner in which information is reported to the EEOC.
The VETS-100 and VETS-100A Reports
Federal contractors and subcontractors have been filing a report with VETS for a number of years. The original report provided to VETS, the VETS-100, requested information on the classes of veterans covered under older versions of the regulations on protected veterans. These classes were as follows:
- Vietnam Era Veterans
- Recently Separated Veterans (i.e. persons within one year of separation from service)
