As an update to our post earlier this month regarding the deadline for filing VETS-100 and/or VETS-100A reports, the U.S. Department of Labor Veterans’ Employment and Training Service (VETS) announced today the deadline for VETS-100/100A report(s) in the 2012 cycle has been extended from September 30, 2012 to October 31, 2012.   All paper reports and electronic files received by VETS on or before October 31st will be included as part of the 2012 filing cycle and will not be considered late.

Last year, as you may recall, VETS encountered technical difficulties with the online filing portal resulting in a lengthy extension of the filing deadline.   VETS moved to a different filing system this year.  The Department has not announced the reason for the extension this year or given any indication of further extension.   

This extension applies only to VETS reporting obligations.  The filing deadline for the 2012 EEO-1 Reports remains September 30, 2012.
