Employment Discrimination

The Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) has published a Technical Assistance Guide designed to help federal government construction contractors and subcontractors comply with the federal laws and regulations that prohibit government contractors from discriminating in employment, and require that they undertake affirmative action to ensure equal employment opportunity in their workforces.  It is intended for government contractors who have construction contracts and/or subcontracts.  The obligations of government contractors and subcontractors who hold non-construction contracts differ in significant ways and are covered in a separate guide.

This Guide does not create new legal requirements or change current legal requirements. Instead, it reflects the views of OFCCP and is intended to serve as a basic resource document on OFCCP-administered laws. The legal requirements related to equal employment opportunity that apply to Federal supply and service contractors are contained in the statutes, executive orders, and regulations cited in the Guide. Every effort has been made to insure that the information contained in the Guide is accurate and up to date.Continue Reading Technical Assistance Guide for Federal Construction Contractors
