OFCCP Issues NPRM for Section 503 – Changes to include Affirmative Action Goals for People with Disabilities

by Robert Newland

The Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) is proposing to revise the regulations implementing the non-discrimination and affirmative action regulations of section 503 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended.

The proposed regulations would:

  • Strengthen the affirmative action provisions, detailing specific actions a contractor must take to satisfy its obligations
  • Increase the contractor’s data collection obligations
  • Establish a utilization goal for individuals with disabilities to assist in measuring the effectiveness of the contractor’s affirmative action efforts
  • Revise the non-discrimination provisions to implement changes necessitated by the passage of the ADA Amendments Act (ADAAA) of 2008

COMMENTS: To be assured of consideration, comments must be received on or before February 7, 2012. Go to www.regulations.gov (RIN number 1250-AA02) to submit comments, or CLICK HERE to view the NPRM.

Affirmative Action Services will provide more comments in the near future.
