“Construction Contractors’ Compliance with OFCCP’s Individuals with Disabilities and Protected Veterans Requirements” By Pamela M. Ploor

Below is an excerpt:

A common misunderstanding among federal construction contractors is that they never have to prepare written affirmative action plans (AAPs). They often base this on their not having to prepare written AAPs for minorities and women under Executive Order 11246. Unlike supply and service contractors, construction contractors do not prepare written AAPs for women and minorities, as discussed in last month's article. The Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs' (OFCCP) regulations concerning written AAPs for protected veterans and individuals with disabilities apply to most construction contractors the same as non-construction contractors, however. This article will highlight protected veterans and individuals with disabilities obligations that covered construction contractors commonly overlook.
