Because of problems with the launch of the 2013 VETS-100/100A reporting cycle, the U.S. Department of Labor has given federal contractors an extra month to submit their reports. The new deadline is October 31, 2013.
Tips: Be careful to select the right snapshot date for your report. One of Vigilant’s members discovered that the online reporting system will only accept a snapshot date between July 1 and August 31, 2013, but the instructions on the report itself say the date must be between August 1 and September 30, 2013. Unfortunately, due to the current government shutdown, there’s no one at the Veterans and Training Service (VETS) office to assist with technical problems or questions about completing the report. Contact your Vigilant affirmative action representative with any general questions, and then just do your best to complete the report. If you decide to send a hard copy instead of completing the form online, make sure to get proof of delivery (but don’t request a signed receipt because it’s likely there won’t be anyone in the office to sign for it).
