The Labor Department’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) has released a new online compliance assistance resource for federal contractors. According to OFCCP, the new resource, formally dubbed the “Contractor Compliance Institute (CCI),” represents a further commitment by the agency to provide “meaningful” compliance assistance to federal contractors and is aimed at helping contractors understand and comply with their affirmative action and nondiscrimination obligations.
Based on our analysis of the materials posted on the CCI website so far, the new resource is most likely to be helpful to companies that are new to OFCCP compliance or those that may want to refresh the knowledge of those employees with OFCCP compliance responsibilities. The landing page for OFCCP’s CCI is available at https://ofccptraining.dol.gov.
