OFCCP Temporarily Suspends Select Federal Contractor Requirements

On August 31, 2017, the Department of Labor issued a press release in support of Texas’s response to Hurricane Harvey. The Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) is temporarily suspending select federal contractor requirements, allowing businesses involved in hurricane relief the ability to prioritize recovery efforts. For a period of three months, subject to possible extension, new Federal contracts to provide Hurricane-Harvey relief efforts will be exempt from having to develop written affirmative action programs as required by Executive Order 11246; The Vietnam Era Veterans Readjustment Assistance Act; and Section 503 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended. You can read the full memo issued from acting Director Thomas Dowd here.
