New Checklist Available to Help Contractors Assess Compliance with OFCCP’s Disability Rule
 

The U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) recently made available on its website a Checklist for Compliance with Section 503 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, a law requiring that federal contractors take affirmative action and do not discriminate against individuals with disabilities.  The new tool was created to help contractors assess their compliance with the regulations that govern the law. 

The Checklist was developed by the Department of Labor’s Office of Disability Employment Policy in coordination with OFCCP.  Contractors are not required to use the Checklist, and using the Checklist does not ensure compliance with the Section 503 regulations. However, using theChecklist may help contractors enhance their awareness of its affirmative action obligations regarding individuals with disabilities and alert them to potential compliance problems.

The Checklist can be found on OFCCP’s website. For additional OFCCP information, tools and resources on the Section 503 regulations, click here.  For AGC resources, log in to the AGC website at www.agc.org, then go to the Labor & HR Topical Resources page at www.agc.org/topicalresources, and select the category “EEO” and subcategory “Affirmative Action/EEO.”  Note that AGC’s Affirmative Action Manual for Construction includes information about OFCCP’s recently revised regulations under Section 503.
