Arnold & Porter Advisory

On August 27, 2013, the Department of Labor's Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) published two final rules (Final Rules) revising the regulations that impose affirmative action obligations on federal contractors with respect to disabled individuals and military veterans. The Final Rules will be published in the Federal Register shortly and are effective 180 days after their publication. These Final Rules modify the regulations implementing Section 503 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 (Section 503) and the Vietnam Era Veterans' Readjustment Assistance Act (VEVRAA) and represent a significant change from current compliance obligations for federal contractors under Section 503 and VEVRAA.
