AGC Hosts OFCCP Contractor Compliance Meeting
 

On June 14, 2017, AGC hosted a meeting between AGC members and officials from the U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP).  OFCCP requested the meeting for the purpose of identifying problems that construction contractors have in meeting affirmative action requirements related to recruiting and suggestions for improved compliance assistance tools.

In 2013, OFCCP updated its regulations on the Vietnam Era Veterans’ Readjustment Assistance Act of 1974 (VEVRAA) and Section 503 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 (Section 503).  The VEVRAA rule prohibits discrimination and requires contractors to take affirmative action in all personnel practices regarding covered veterans.  The Section 503 rule prohibits discrimination and requires contractors to take affirmative action in all personnel practices for qualified individuals with disabilities.

AGC facilitates these types of meetings to connect the federal agencies with the construction industry they are required to regulate.  These are unique opportunities for AGC to help educate the federal officials on how their rulemakings translate at the practical level and identify additional opportunities for partnership.  AGC looks forward to continuing to work with the OFCCP and other federal agencies on behalf of its membership.  AGC members interested in participating in future meetings with OFCCP may contact Claiborne Guy at claiborne.guy@agc.org or 703-837-5382.
