Affirmative Action Compliance? Check.
August 12, 2015

By Damien Munsinger

Employers who need to update their affirmative action plans for disabled individuals can use a new government-issued checklist to measure their plans against federal regulatory requirements, which were revised in 2014.

The checklist asks detailed “compliance questions” for each applicable federal regulation, and can help employers identify deficient areas in their Rehabilitation Act Section 503 affirmative action plan for individuals with disabilities.

The Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) may be stepping up enforcement actions since the current regulations have been in place for more than a year. The OFCCP states that use of its checklist is no guarantee of compliance with federal regulations, so consider consulting legal counsel with any lingering questions.

The checklist is available to download here, and our previous alerts about affirmative action plans are available here and here.

Electronic Alerts are written by Barran Liebman attorneys for their clients and friends. Alerts are not intended as legal advice, but as employment law, labor law, and employee benefits announcements. If this has been forwarded to you, and you would like to begin receiving Electronic Alerts directly, please email or call Traci Ray at 503-276-2115. Copyright © by Barran Liebman LLP.
