Employment and Government Contracts Alert

The U.S. Department of Labor's Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) recently issued regulations expanding affirmative action for individuals with disabilities and protected veterans. The regulations obligate federal contractors and subcontractors to set numeric goals and benchmarks, collect new types of data, and regularly document the effectiveness of their efforts. The new regulations have been years in the making and now create a steep learning curve for contractors to come into compliance.
