At OFCCP, we succeed when contractors succeed. Today, we are taking another step toward joint success with the release of two new policy directives, shining a brighter light on our compliance activities and establishing a program to hear concerns that contractors may be reluctant to share.
The Transparency Directive provides specific procedures that will help contractors comply with their obligations, know what to expect during a compliance evaluation, and protect workers from discrimination through the consistent enforcement of OFCCP legal authorities.
The Ombud Directive launches a program to create an impartial and independent Ombud Service to facilitate the fair and equitable resolution of specific types of concerns raised by OFCCP external stakeholders. Though there are not ramifications for contacting OFCCP, we want to be sure contractors always have a line of communication they feel they can trust to ask questions or raise concerns.
