It has been nearly five years since the Labor Department’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) overhauled its regulations implementing Section 503 of the Rehabilitation Act (Section 503) and Section 4212 of the Vietnam Era Veterans’ Readjustment Assistance Act (Section 4212). The revised rules, published in September of 2013, constituted a near-total rewrite of the nondiscrimination and affirmative action requirements pertaining to individuals with disabilities and protected veterans.

Since then, NT Lakis lawyers have published numerous materials aimed at assisting employers in the practical, effective implementation of those requirements. And while most covered federal contractors are now compliant with the major provisions of these regulations, such as the new self-identification and data collection requirements, there are a number of more obscure requirements that may have fallen off the radar.

We have prepared a guide that addresses some of these requirements, specifically those that apply to a contractor’s online career portal. It addresses both what OFCCP’s regulations require, and what OFCCP will look for during a routine compliance evaluation.

Please note that this guide is not intended to provide legal advice. Specific issues regarding compliance with OFCCP requirements should be referred to legal counsel.
