VETS-4212 Federal Contractor Reporting

Program Overview

The U.S. Department of Labor Veterans' Employment and Training service (VETS) and Office of Federal Contractor Compliance Programs (OFCCP) has supported affirmative actionís to employ and advance in employment, "covered veterans" since 2008. As legislatively mandated under 38 U.S. Code, Section 4212, codified at 41 CFR Section 61-300, respectively, contractors and subcontractors who enter into, or modify a contract or subcontract with the federal government, and whose contract meets the criteria set forth in the above legislation/regulations, are required to report annually on their affirmative action efforts in employing veterans. VETS has a legislative requirement to collect, and make available to OFCCP, reported data contained on the VETS-4212 report for compliance enforcement.
