“Attention Construction Contractors: Are Your Affirmative Action Steps Consistent with Executive Order 11246?” By Pamela M. Ploor

Below is an excerpt:

Last fall, OFCCP was expected to publish in May 2016 proposed revisions to Executive Order 11246's affirmative action requirements for federal and federally-assisted construction contractors and subcontractors. OFCCP last updated its construction contractor regulations decades ago in the 1970s. The likelihood of OFCCP updating its regulations before the end of the Obama Administration is fading, especially since it did not refer to that proposal in its budget justification for fiscal year 2017. Nonetheless, there is no time like the present for construction contractors to brush up on their Executive Order 11246 knowledge and compliance.
