New Rules for Federal Contractor Hiring Practices
Sep.17.2013 — Compliance Week
Washington, D.C.-based counsel Rebecca Springer discusses how federal contractors will have to change their current processes for recruitment and hiring because of two new final rules. According to the article, the final rules "require federal contractors to heed an exhaustive list of obligations to ensure compliance with non-discrimination and affirmative action requirements regarding veterans and individuals with disabilities." Springer explains that contractors and their written agreements with sub-contractors and/or vendors will have to now include new language to follow the rules.
