CCE SUBMITS COMMENTS ON VETERANS NPRM

The Equal Employment Advisory Council, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, the National Association of Manufacturers, The Associated General Contractors of America, the Center for Corporate Equality, and the HR Policy Association submitted a letter to the Hon. Hilda L. Solis (Secretary of Labor), Debra A. Carr (OFCCP) and others asking for immediate withdrawal of the Notice of proposed Rulemaking (“NPRM”) in regard to Veterans. The letter stated that they fully support OFCCP’s stated overall goal of increasing employment opportunities for covered veterans, but could not support a significant new regulatory scheme that places far greater emphasis on ineffective paperwork requirements than it does on practical programs to employ U.S. veterans. The letter urges OFCCP to engage businesses, organizations, and other experts to develop a proposal that would meaningfully improve the quantity and quality of job opportunities for our nation’s veterans, without imposing the burdensome administrative, recordkeeping, and paperwork requirements contained within OFCCP’s proposal as written on the very employers expected to provide those job opportunities.
