OFCCP Gets Tough


"We are going to be extremely proactive and aggressive. The message is it's a new day at the Department of Labor and it's a new day at the OFCCP," Patricia A. Shiu, Director of the OFCCP, Feb. 16, 2010.

The Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) certainly remained true to these words during the course of 2010. The OFCCP has promised to aggressively enforce its regulatory agenda – and is delivering on its promise. While the federal contractor community awaits revised OFCCP regulations, the following cases, settlements, and program changes announced by the OFCCP since mid-October 2010 are certainly enough to make federal contractors want to ensure that they take all steps to understand and comply with their affirmative action and non-discrimination obligations.

Note that, in every case, the companies mentioned below denied any discrimination or wrongdoing.
