The U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) has announced two new databases intended to help federal contractors and subcontractors meet new regulatory obligations with respect to hiring individuals with disabilities and veterans. The new regulations went into effect on March 24, 2014, and require federal contractors to establish certain utilization goals for veterans under the Vietnam Era Veterans’ Readjustment Assistance Act (VEVRAA) and for individuals with disabilities under Section 503 of the Rehabilitation Act.
The OFCCP has released the “Disability and Veterans Community Resources Directory” to provide federal contractors with a resource for recruiting veterans and individuals with disabilities. The OFCCP describes the database as a “nonexhaustive directory” available to assist federal contractors with meeting their obligations under the new regulations.
