The U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs has released an updated Technical Assistance Guide to help federal and federally assisted construction contractors and subcontractors understand their obligations under the laws enforced by OFCCP.

According to an OFCCP news release, the guide provides both practical and useful compliance assistance resources and a valuable self-assessment tool for contractors to review practices they have in place to eliminate discrimination and achieve their equal employment opportunity goals.

OFCCP has also provided several updated resources as part of its effort to increase emphasis on compliance with Section 503 of the Rehabilitation Act. These resources include the Section 503 Focused Review Landing Page and a compliance check resource webpage. Additionally, ABC held a webinar on OFCCP’s actions and policy changes in March, providing resources on compliance checks and other OFCCP programs.

The Technical Assistance Guide for construction is available on the OFCCP website.
