e-Alert: VETS-4212 Reporting Requirements

By September 2, 2021September 16th, 2021No Comments


Each year starting August 1 and going through September 30, all contractors and subcontractors that have contracts that meet the requirement for submitting reports must file a report during the official “Filing Cycle.” Additionally, if a contractor or subcontractor obtains a contract that meets the requirements to submit report(s), they are required to submit these report(s) within 120 days.


All nonexempt federal contractors and subcontractors with $150,000 or more in federal contracts need to prepare a VETS-4212 Report.  The report must be submitted for the company headquarters, and separately for each hiring location, and include data from July or August of the current year.

Companies with federal contracts or subcontracts are required to keep three years of their VETS-4212 reports to fulfill their affirmative action obligations in employing veterans.
