by Ahmed Younies - Feb, 2014
Part I reviewed the OFCCP's many accomplishments in 2013 and discussed their implications for 2014. Its 2014 agenda appears no less ambitious (more on that soon).

Contract Compliance in the Context of Transgender Discrimination
by Sandra Zeigler, Esq. - Jan, 2014
I recently received, from former OFCCP colleagues, a copy of an article posted on Buzzfeed.com on December 4, 2013.

The purpose of this article is to shed some light on what that response may actu...

The Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs issued its revised regulations implementing Section 503 of the Rehabilitation Act and the Vietnam Era Veterans’ Readjustment Assistance Act on September 24, 2013.
