OFCCP SUBMITS NOTICE TO RESCIND COMPENSATION STANDARDS AND GUIDELINES TO OMB

by Fred Satterwhite, Senior Consultant, DCI Consulting Group

OFCCP submitted a "Notice of Proposed Rescission, Interpreting Nondiscrimination Requirements of Executive Order 11246 With Respect to Systemic Compensation Discrimination and Voluntary Guidelines for Self-Evaluation" to the Office of Management and Budget's Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs (OIRA) on October 25, 2010.

This is the first step in the official process to rescind the compensation standards and guidelines under which OFCCP has been operating since 2006- a move that has been publicly discussed by OFCCP Director Patricia Shiu in the last few months.

OIRA is also currently reviewing OFCCP's Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) that would revise the regulations implementing the nondiscrimination and affirmative action provisions for veterans, including requirements to conduct substantive analyses of recruitment and placement activities and to use numerical goals to measure the effectiveness of the affirmative action program for veterans. OFCCP submitted this NPRM to OIRA on July 2, 2010, and it is currently targeted for publication in December, 2010.
