Hurricane Sandy prompts extension of affirmative action form deadline

by Tammy Binford

The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) has extended the deadline for federal contractors and subcontractors to file their VETS-100 and/or 100A reports because of the effects of Hurricane Sandy. The deadline was extended from October 31 to November 9.

All paper reports and electronic files in the 2012 cycle are now due to the DOL’s Veterans’ Employment and Training Service (VETS) Service Desk on November 9.

Contractors and subcontractors that enter into or modify contracts with the federal government and who meet the criteria set forth by law must report every year on their affirmative action efforts in employing veterans on either the 100 or 100A forms. Current contracts or subcontracts of at least $25,000 that were entered into before December 1, 2003, take the VETS 100 report, and contracts of at least $100,000 entered into on or after December 1, 2003, take the VETS 100A report.
