Legal Alert: EEOC and OFCCP Publish Revised Memorandum of Understanding Regarding Coordination of Efforts


For the first time in twelve years, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) have issued an updated memorandum of understanding (MOU) that outlines how the agencies will coordinate their enforcement efforts and share information regarding discrimination claims under Title VII and Executive Order 11246.

The MOU between the EEOC and OFCCP was last revised in 1999. The updated MOU, which was published in the November 16, 2011 Federal Register, includes the following updates: using contemporary office names and titles; designating a "Coordination Advocate" at both agencies; reorganizing and/or condensing language for clarity; streamlining the Compliance Coordination Committees; and clarifying the complaint/charge referral procedures.
