On Friday March 8, 2019, the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) announced a new landing page dedicated to Section 503 of the Rehabilitation Act which prohibits federal contractors and subcontractors from discriminating in employment against individuals with disabilities. The landing page is part of the OFCCP’s ongoing commitment to “strengthening the partnership between the OFCCP and federal contractors.”
Contractors can find several links to useful information on the landing page, including sections on:
- 503 focused reviews,
- a disability inclusion video,
- a disability rights factsheet,
- best practices,
- and a reasonable accommodation pocket card.
The Section 503 landing page may be accessed here.
