The Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs has been busy the past few months and anticipates heightened activity in the months to come. New OFCCP initiatives include: (1) asserting jurisdiction over healthcare providers, (2) revamping efforts to identify workers misclassified as contractors; (3) proposing new affirmative action regulations for construction contractors; and (4) increasing enforcement activity to address discrimination. We discuss all of these developments in a client alert that is available here.
An earlier client alert discusses the decision in OFCCP v. Florida Hospital, No. 2009-OFC-00002 (DOL Oct. 18, 2010).
