The Offi ce of Federal Contract Compliance Programs published this morning a proposed rule regarding affirmative action obligations under the Vietnam Era Veterans’ Readjustment Assistance Act, with a 60-day comment period.

We are currently reviewing the proposed rule, which is extensive, and we will issue a more in-depth bulletin in the near future.
