The OFCCP recently published two notices announcing the rescission of certain agency directives that either contain outdated information or address issues that are addressed in other agency materials. The OFCCP maintains a Directive System as one means of distributing guidance to its staff members and to the public. The OFCCP has been reviewing agency directives since December 2011 to determine whether they should remain active or be rescinded.
In April 2012, the agency issued Directive Number 300, rescinding 18 directives as outdated or redundant. These directives date back to 1976 and include, among other things, debarments of specific companies, consent decrees, and sanctions. In June 2012, the OFCCP issued Directive Number 302, which rescinded 13 additional directives as outdated or redundant. These directives date back to 1972 and address, among other things, administrative and procedural issues.
Directive Number 300 is available on the OFCCP's web site at: http://www.dol.gov/ofccp/regs/compliance/directives/dir300.pdf. Directive Number 302 is available on the OFCCP's web site at: http://www.dol.gov/ofccp/regs/compliance/directives/dir302.pdf.
