The new Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) regulations governing affirmative action obligations towards protected veterans and individuals with disabilities, announced August 27th, were published in the Federal Register on September 24th. As such, the clock has started ticking on the 180 days until the revised regulations become effective. All contractors and subcontractors (collectively "contractors") must begin complying with the new obligations by March 23, 2014. The revised regulations contain significant changes to contractors' data collection, analysis and recordkeeping obligations. All contractors should start thinking now about how to best implement the new requirements by the March 23rd deadline.
