On September 24, 2013, Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) published a Final Rule in the Federal Register, making changes to the regulations of Section 503 of the Rehabilitation Act and the 503 and VEVRAA Regulations Vietnam Era Veterans’ Readjustment Assistance Act (VEVRAA). The new regulations went into effect March 24, 2014 and the highlights of the regulations included:

  • Establishment of a 7% utilization goal for qualified Individuals with Disabilities 
  • Incorporation of the EO Clause
  • Requirement of contractors to invite applicants to voluntarily self-identify
  • New data collection requirements
  • Requirement of contractors to allow access to records

It has now been one year since the new regulations went into effect and it is imperative organizations are ensuring compliance, and an understanding of the enforcement of these regulations. Recently, Lynn Clements, Berkshire’s Director of Regulatory Affairs, presented a free webinar, “One Year Older—How OFCCP is Enforcing the New 503 and VEVRAA Regulations.” During this webinar attenddees learned proven strategies for 503 and VEVRAA compliance in OFCCP audits including:
