Life is about to get a little bit simpler for federal contractors and subcontractors, as far as collecting veterans hiring data for the DOL goes. Today, the DOL published a final regulation that relieves the VETS-100 and VETS-100A reporting burden. HR managers will no longer have to classify vets into subclasses of protected vets, under the new VETS-4212 reporting system, which will be in play in September 2015 and thereafter. The VETS-4212 Report looks at the big picture for contractors, and should make data collection and categorization much more simple for folks in HR.
For more specifics on the new, simplified system, our colleague, Jonathan Cain, Member in Mintz Levin’s Government Contracts Practice, summarizes it in this alert: “VETS-100 and 100A Veteran Hiring Reports Retired by the Department of Labor.”
