Federal Contractors Face Closer Scrutiny

Federal contractors in the US have been urged to be ready for a new government crackdown on contractors who are not meeting their obligations under anti-discrimination laws.

The Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP), inspections of federal contractors and subcontractors , will include more intensive scrutiny to look for lack of Affirmative Action Plan (AAP) documentation, which employers now are required to update annually.

Last February, the office announced its intention to conduct affirmative action Compliance Audits of one thousand federal contractor employers.

In spite of President Donald Trump administration’s emphasis on removing government regulations, OFCCP said it remained committed to vigorous enforcement of anti-discrimination laws.
