Deadline for VETS-100/VETS-100A Report is December 30, 2011; All Covered Companies MUST File by This Date

If your company is a federal contractor or subcontractor, the period to file your VETS-100 and/or VETS-100A report ends on December 30, 2011. The Department of Labor’s Veterans Employment and Training Service (VETS) indicates that no companies will be allowed to file their 2011 reports after December 30, 2011.
