    OFCCP New Veterans and Disability Regulations: Your To-Do List

    Pre-approved for one HRCI Credit

    The OFCCP posted the Final Rule updating the Veteran and Disability regulations. The goal is to improve employment of people in these two categories.

    The VEVRAA rule provides contractors with a quantifiable metric to measure their success in recruiting and employing veterans by requiring contractors to annually adopt a benchmark either based on the national percentage of veterans in the workforce (currently 8 percent), or their own benchmark based on the best available data. The rule strengthens accountability and record-keeping requirements, enabling contractors to assess the effectiveness of their recruitment efforts. It also clarifies job listing and subcontract requirements to facilitate compliance.

    The Section 503 rule introduces a hiring goal for federal contractors and subcontractors that 7 percent of each job group in their workforce be qualified individuals with disabilities. The rule also details specific actions contractors must take in the areas of recruitment, training, record keeping and policy dissemination — similar to those that have long been required to promote workplace equality for women and minorities.

    So, what does it all mean to you? Come and learn about the changes and leave this webinar with a to-do list of what needs to happen and when.
