On Nov. 7, 2013, AGC will host a webinar on the Office of Contract Compliance Programs’ (OFCCP) recently announced final rules regarding veterans and individuals with disabilities. Both rules expand the affirmative-action obligations of direct federal contractors and their subcontractors with regard to the two protected groups. The webinar will be held at 2:00 p.m. EST.
On Sept. 24, the U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Program’s (OFCCP) long-anticipated final rules on veterans and individuals with disabilities (IWD) were posted in the Federal Register. Both rules increase the affirmative action requirements of direct federal contractors and subcontractors. The agency pre-released each of the final rules in August but announced that they would not go into effect until 180 days after being published. The effective date of both rules is March 24, 2014. However, for contractors with a written affirmative action program in place at that time, the affirmative action program requirements do not go into effect until the beginning of the next plan year.
