CENTER FOR CORPORATE EQUALITY RELEASES OFCCP FY2008 REPORT, CALLS FOR TRANSPARENCY IN OFCCP REPORTING

The Center for Corporate Equality (CCE) has released its annual report summarizing enforcement results developed by the U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) on their equal employment and affirmative action requirements.

The report, A REVIEW OF OFCCP ENFORCEMENT STATISTICS FOR FISCAL YEAR 2008, offers a detailed analysis of the agency’s fiscal year 2008 enforcement results that resulted in $67,518,982 in back pay and annualized salary and benefits for 24,508 American workers who had been subjected to unlawful employment discrimination. In addition, this report includes a comparison of enforcement results from FY 2007 to FY 2008. The in-depth results of this analysis provide useful information about OFCCP’s enforcement programs that the agency does not make publicly available.

The report is featured in today’s BNA Daily Labor Report® and is available on CCE's website at http://www.cceq.org/.
