Federal Government Contractors and Subcontractors: Compliance with the OFCCP’s New Regulations Under VEVRAA and the Rehabilitation Act – What You Need to Be Doing NOW! – Part I
Part I of a Complimentary Two-Part Webinar Series
The new regulations issued by the Department of Labor’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (“OFCCP”) covering the Vietnam Era Veterans Readjustment Assistance Act, as amended (“VEVRAA”), and Section 503 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended, have substantially expanded the affirmative action obligations imposed on federal government contractors and subcontractors, including creating a benchmark for the hiring of protected veterans and establishing a utilization goal for the employment of individuals with disabilities. With the regulations having gone into effect March 24, 2014, contractors must be taking steps now to ensure compliance.
Going forward, it is clear that the OFCCP will be focused during compliance reviews not only on rooting out discrimination in hiring and compensation, but also on scrutinizing contractors’ documented efforts to increase the employment opportunities for protected veterans and individuals with disabilities.
In this two-part webinar, Epstein Becker Green attorneys will explain the new regulations, enforcement considerations, outreach requirements, and hot-button issues.
Part I: On October 14, 2014, our discussion will focus on the new requirements expanding contractors’ obligations towards protected veterans under VEVRAA.
Part II: On October 28, 2014, our discussion will focus on the new requirements expanding contractors’ obligations towards individuals with disabilities under the Rehabilitation Act.
