New Final Rules Require Federal Contractors to Increase Efforts to Hire Veterans and Disabled Individuals
The U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) recently issued much-anticipated Final Rules that will require federal contractors to engage in specific and measurable recruitment efforts to hire veterans and persons with disabilities.
These Final Rules formally take effect 180 days after being published in the Federal Register. The new regulations make significant changes to the Vietnam Era Veterans’ Readjustment and Assistance Act (VEVRAA) and Section 503 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973.
For additional information on the Final Rules and a summary of the major changes to VEVRAA and Section 503, download our latest Labor & Employment legal Alert by clicking on the link below.
