EEO-1 Report due September 30, VETS-100/100A delayed until November 30

Affirmative Action 

It’s time once again to begin compiling data for the annual EEO-1 Report, due September 30. The report shows a one-day snapshot of your workforce by race/ethnicity and gender, based on any payroll period from July through September, and sorted by 10 job categories. The report is mandatory for most employers with at least 100 employees. Companies with at least 50 employees must file if they are a prime contractor or first-tier subcontractor with at least $50,000 in federal contracts, or if they serve as a depository of federal funds or if they are a financial institution that is an issuing and paying agent for U.S. Savings Bonds and Notes.


For those employers with federal contracts and subcontracts who are also ready to file their VETS-100/100A Reports, the system is offline because of technical problems. The Department of Labor expects everything to be back up and running by October 1, and is therefore extending the deadline for filing until November 30, 2011. These reports contain a snapshot of the veterans in your workforce as of the end of a payroll period in July or August, plus veterans hired within the previous 12 months, sorted by 10 job categories. The VETS-100A is required for employers with a federal contract or subcontract worth at least $100,000 that was signed or modified on or after December 1, 2003. Employers with older, unmodified contracts worth at least $25,000 must file the VETS-100.
