Annual VETS-4212 Reporting Reporting Portal OPEN: Veterans’ Employment and Training Service

It’s that time again to file your required VETS reports.  Under the Vietnam Era Veterans’ Readjustment Act of 1972 (VEVRAA), federal contractors and subcontractors with contracts of $100,000 or more are required to file reports annually with Veterans’ Employment and Training Service (VETS).

This year contractors will be filing for the first time the new VETS 4212 form.  The VETS-4212 form reduces the reporting obligations for employers requiring only aggregate numbers of protected veterans by EEO Category to be reported.  The previously used VETS-100 and VETS-100A forms have been discontinued and are no longer being accepted by VETS.

VETS announced the VETS-4212 Reporting Application officially opened on August 3, 2015.  Employers have until September 30, 2015 to file their reports unless an extension is obtained.

Frequently Asked Questions and other information about the form is available on the VETS website or by contacting VETS at 1-866-237-0275 or
