The Employer's Legal Resource: Reminder About EEO-1 Filings
Employers required to file an EEO-1 report must do so on or before September 30, 2013. Generally speaking, these are required of private employers of 100 or more employees and of federal government contractors or first tier subcontractors with 50 or more employees and a contract or subcontract of at least $50,000. If you have questions, you can refer to the EEO-1 website or contact legal counsel.
Likewise, employers required to file the VETS 100 or VETS 100A must do so on or before September 30, 2013. This is limited to federal contractors and subcontractors subject to the Vietnam Era Veteran's Readjustment Assistance Act of 1974 and its requirements to track certain demographic information about employees. To determine if you must comply and which report you must complete, refer to the DOL's website or contact legal counsel.
On some (possible) good news, the DOL is considering abolishing the VETS 100 form and revising the VETS 100A form. If this happens, it presumably would limit the number of employers required to complete these forms (likely to those contractors with more financially significant contracts) and might even make the forms easier to complete. We will keep you updated, but please do not count on this happening before the September 30, 2013, deadline.
