In my prior post, I discussed the type of data that the government collects with EEO-1 reports and how that information is used. In this post, I address the upcoming deadlines for both EEO-1 and VETS-100 reports.

EEO-1 reports for employers with 100 or more employees and federal contractors/first-tier subcontractors with 50 or more employers must be filed no later than September 30. For you time-pressed filers, a one-time extension is routinely granted; simply email e1.extensions@eeoc.gov before September 30, providing your company name, company EEO-1 number, address, and the contact information for the person responsible for the report.  For information on which employers must file and how to file the EEO-1 report, click here.

The good news is that the reporting period for filing VETS-100 and -100A reports has been extended from September 30 to October 31. Employers with at least one current federal contract awarded or amended after December 1, 2003 in the amount of $100,000 or more should file the VETS-100A form; current contracts of $25,000 or more that have not been amended or modified since December 1, 2003 warrant a VETS-100 report. If you have questions about whether to file or which form to complete, you can use the VETS-100 Reporting Wizard.
