Question rise over potential for merged snapshot dates
As we approach the 2017 VETS-4212 filing deadline, questions continue to arise as Federal contractors struggle with the separation of EEO-1 and VETS-4212 reporting dates and ask, what additional changes are coming. We have come to understand that the Department of Labor may allow for a single snapshot date to be used for the 2018 EEO-1 and VETS-4212 filing. This would lessen the burden of having to pull data for two different snapshot dates. However, the separate filing deadlines would remain. These concepts are being passed around and are not yet confirmed in text formally posted by the Department of Labor.
To be clear, OutSolve is not aware of any changes for the 2017 VETS-4212 filing and we will not recommend any changes in compliance requirements until formal declarations have been made by the Department of Labor. As far as 2018 filing requirements go, the moment that these discussed points become law we will immediately share them through appropriate channels.
