2017 VETS-4212 Reporting Window Now Open
|Monday, August 7, 2017|
|Federal contractors and subcontractors with covered contracts of $150,000 or more are required to file an annual Veterans employment report, or VETS-4212 report, with the Department of Labor (DOL) each year. The 2017 reporting cycle opened August 1, and contractors may file reports online here.
For the 2017 reports, contractors must select a pay period ending between July 1 and August 31, 2017, for the snapshot. The 12-month period preceding the selected payroll period ending date will serve as the 12-month reporting period. For example, if a contractor selects a pay period that ends on August 31, 2017, the contractor counts the new hires during the previous 52 calendar weeks and reports the total number of employees at the end of the August 31 pay period.
Reports for the reporting cycle may be filed between August 1 and September 30.
