In October 2013, we alerted government contractors and subcontractors to newly-issued regulations establishing additional affirmative action reporting and hiring preference requirements for veterans and persons with disabilities. The new rules officially went into effect this past Monday, March 24, 2014.

Although portions of the rules only become applicable upon companies’ annual affirmative action plan year start date, human resources departments and contracting shops should begin implementing the new rules lest they run afoul of the Department of Labor’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP).

Please see full alert below for more information.
