Potential Two-Year Moratorium on Compliance Evaluations for Winning Establishment
The U.S. Department of Labor’s (DOL) Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) and the Office of Disability Employment Policy (ODEP) are joining efforts to recognize excellence in contractor compliance practices. The Excellence in Disability Inclusion Award will highlight successful practices and strategies of contractors that have expanded and improved recruitment, hiring, retention, and promotion opportunities for individuals with disabilities. With this new award program, OFCCP and ODEP seek to recognize contractors that are going above and beyond to foster employment opportunities for individuals with disabilities.
This initiative comes on the heels of recent OFCCP directives and is one of several suggestions from Town Hall meetings and in the action plan for OFCCP to become more transparent and collaborative. The proposed structure and details of the recognition program are published in today's Federal Register. You can read the formal notice, supporting statement, and see a draft of the award nomination form and instructions here.
