The OFCCP has been very busy recently and released two additional directives in its efforts to improve transparency with the contractor community.

The Transparency Directive provides specific procedures that will help contractors comply with their obligations, know what to expect during a compliance evaluation, and protect workers from discrimination through the consistent enforcement of OFCCP legal authorities.”

The Ombud Directive launches a program to create an impartial and independent Ombud Service to facilitate the fair and equitable resolution of specific types of concerns raised by OFCCP external stakeholders [including federal contractors]. Though there are not ramifications for contacting OFCCP, we want to be sure contractors always have a line of communication they feel they can trust to ask questions or raise concerns.”
