Annual Report From Federal Contractors
Document Number: E8-26185
Type: Rule
Date: 2008-11-05
Agency: Department of Labor, Veterans' Employment and Training Service, Veterans Employment and Training Service
This final rule revises the regulations in 41 CFR Part 61-250 implementing the requirement under the Vietnam Era Veterans' Readjustment Assistance Act of 1974, as amended, (``VEVRAA'') that Government contractors track and annually report the number of employees in their workforces who are veterans covered under the law. Today's final rule revises the regulations in 41 CFR Part 61-250 to incorporate the amendment to VEVRAA made by the Veterans' Benefit and Health Care Improvement Act of 2000 (``VBHCIA''). The VBHCIA amendment extended the protections of VEVRAA to a category of veterans called ``recently separated veterans.'' In addition, the final rule published today clarifies that the regulations in 41 CFR Part 61-250 implement the reporting requirements under VEVRAA prior to their amendment in 2002 by the Jobs for Veterans Act (``JVA''), and apply to Government contracts entered into before December 1, 2003. The final rule also makes clear that the regulations in 41 CFR Part 61-300 implementing the JVA amendments to VEVRAA's reporting requirements, apply if a contract entered into before December 1, 2003, is modified on or after that date and the contract as modified is for $100,000 or more.

Regulations Under the Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act of 1994; Correction
Document Number: E8-25447
Type: Rule
Date: 2008-10-27
Agency: Department of Labor, Veterans' Employment and Training Service, Veterans Employment and Training Service
In this rulemaking, the Veterans' Employment and Training Service (VETS) is correcting and consolidating the text in parts A and B of the appendix to 20 CFR part 1002 (``Notice of Your Rights Under USERRA''). VETS published the appendix on March 10, 2005 in response to the Veterans Benefits Improvement Act of 2004 (VBIA). The VBIA amended the Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act of 1994 (USERRA) by requiring employers to notify affected employees of the rights, benefits, and obligations of employees and employers under USERRA. As published, the text of the required USERRA rights notice included information about a temporary demonstration project established under the VBIA that called for VETS to transfer to the Office of Special Counsel some claims brought against Federal executive agencies. The demonstration project ended on December 31, 2007. This rulemaking is therefore deleting this outdated reference from the text of the USERRA rights notice. In addition, this rulemaking is consolidating the text in parts A and B of the required USERRA rights notice to eliminate the need for separate notices for Federal and non- Federal agency employers. This rulemaking does not require employers to replace the notices currently in use because, even without this correction and consolidation, the current notices comply with the USERRA employee-notification requirements.
