On August 27, 2013, the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) published the final rules regarding affirmative action for protected veterans and individuals with disabilities.

These rules, which will become effective on March 24, 2014, require federal contractors and subcontractors to substantially change their affirmative action programs for veterans and individuals with disabilities.

In addition, the rules require contractors and subcontractors to update various notices, contract clauses, forms, advertising taglines, EEO surveys, and impose several additional data collection and recordkeeping requirements. Because the changes required by the final rules are substantial, federal contractors and subcontractors should be meeting with management, IT personnel, and their legal advisors now to ensure compliance with the new regulations.

Join Foley attorneys Dan Kaplan and Carmen Couden for a two-hour practical discussion regarding the changes required by the final rules and the specific steps contractors should be taking to comply. Topics will include:

  • Overview of the final rules
  • Preparation of AAPs for veterans and individuals with disabilities and incorporation of the new benchmarks and hiring targets
  • The new required notices (internal and external)
  • Changes to self-id forms, advertisements, contract clauses, and job listings
  • Data collection and recordkeeping changes
  • Timelines for implementation

The OFCCP has been working on these rules for years, and their implementation will be the focus of OFCCP audits in the future. If you are a federal contractor — you cannot afford to miss this program.

There is no cost to participate in this Web Conference, but advance registration is required.
