November 2017 Breaking News – Extension for Vets-4212 Gives Employers Time to File Correctly

The Department of Labor announced that Federal contractors have until November 15 to file the VETS-4212 form, which tracks efforts to employ veterans. The form is usually due on September 30. Contractors have a little more time to make sure their filings are in order.

Contractors with the federal government must report annually on their affirmative action efforts in employing veterans.

The VETS-4212 form covers:

  • Disabled veterans.
  • Active duty wartime or campaign badge veterans. Campaign badge veterans served on active duty during a war—such as World War II, Korea, Vietnam, Iraq or Afghanistan—or in an expedition for which a campaign badge or an expeditionary medal has been authorized—for instance, in Haiti, Somalia, Bosnia or Grenada.
  • Armed Forces service medal veterans—veterans who, while serving on active duty in the Armed Forces, participated in a U.S. military operation for which an Armed Forces service medal was awarded according to Executive Order 12985.
  • Recently separated veterans—veterans within 36 months from discharge or release from active duty.
