OFCCP Director Resigns

Ondray T. Harris, Director of the Office of Federal Contractor Compliance Programs (“OFCCP”), resigned on July 27, 2018. No public explanation for his resignation has been provided, which came only eight months after he assumed the position.

Reports indicate that Craig Leen, Senior Advisor to the OFCCP, will step into the role as Acting Director of the agency. On July 25, 2018, OFCCP’s updated its website’s personnel page to refer to Mr. Leen as its “Deputy Director.” Both Mr. Harris and Mr. Leen are credited with taking steps to improve relationships between the OFCCP and the federal government contracting community, and Mr. Harris’ resignation is not expected to lead to a change in this new approach.

The announcement came just over one week before Mr. Harris was slated to speak about the OFCCP at the National Industry Liaison Group’s annual conference. On July 27, 2018, the NILG announced that Mr. Leen would replace Mr. Harris as the keynote speaker at the event.
