Craig Leen, Acting Director of OFCCP, authored a memorandum granting federal contractors a limited exemption & waiver from some required compliance efforts following Hurricane Michael. The memo details its intention to assist new supply & service federal contractors involved in Hurricane Michael relief with their contractor requirements.
Similar to the suspension issued by Former Director Tom Dowd in response to Hurricane Harvey, the memorandum essentially suspends development of written affirmative action program requirements for EO 11246, Section 503, and Section 4212 of VEVRAA from October 11th 2018 through January 11th 2019. This waiver is subject to extension in the event of “special circumstances,” as referenced in the text of the memo.
Please reference OFCCP website’s FAQs on this matter for further clarification.
