OFCCP recently updated its Frequently Asked Questions (“FAQs”) on the implementation of the Vietnam Era Veterans’ Readjustment Assistance Act (“VEVRAA”) and Section 503 of the Rehabilitation Act final rules.  The most recent FAQs address questions regarding the availability of the “EEO is the Law” poster, the ability to use human resource information systems as the data analysis file for self-identification records, and acceptable language for Equal Opportunity clauses. 

Most of the new requirements of the Final Regulations went into effect yesterday, March 24, 2014.  For a summary of the Final Regulations, please review our comprehensive client alert or our Webinar concerning the Final Regulations.  Proskauer has developed a comprehensive set of compliance materials to help contractors implement the new compliance obligations imposed by the Final Regulations.
