The U.S. Department of Labor today announced two final rules to improve hiring and employment of veterans and people with disabilities.
The Veterans’ Employment and Training Service (VETS) of the U.S. Department of Labor has issued the final rule to revise reporting requirements for federal contractors and subcontractors under the Vietnam Era Veterans’ Readjustment Act of 1974, as amended (VEVRAA). The final rule, which is intended to minimize paperwork burdens for contractors, was published in the Federal Register on September 25, 2014. In spite of the effective date of October 27, 2014, contractors will not be affected until the 2015 annual reporting period. Below is an outline of the key differences between the VETS-100A report and the new VETS-4212 report:
- The VETS-100A Report is now named the VETS-4212 Report.
- The VETS-100 Report is rescinded, rendering obsolete
