Two new groundbreaking regulations implementing Section 503 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Vietnam Era Veterans Readjustment Assistance Act went into effect on March 24. They require federal government contractors and subcontractors to radically change how they recruit, track, screen, hire, and deal with job applicants and employees who are a protected veteran or an individual with a disability.

This webinar will cover:

• Federal contractor/subcontractor coverage issues: who does this apply to?

• Required notices for internal and external groups

• Self-identification disclosures: requirements and risks

• Utilization goals and benchmarks

• Job vacancy listing requirements

• Affirmative Action Plans and audits

• Resources

Legal compliance with these new OFCCP regulations will be a challenge for human resource practitioners and in-house counsel. The goal of this webinar is to provide an overview to what’s involved in these sweeping changes so that attorneys with Meritas firms can alert and advise their clients who are federal government contractors and subcontractors.
