On January, 28, 2015, OFCCP released the Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) for the long awaited revisions to the Sex Discrimination Guidelines (RIN 1250-AA05).
The final rule for prohibiting discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity was published December 9, 2014. This rule becomes effective on April 8, 2015. Many contractors are wondering what actions need to be taken to comply with the new requirements. We hope that this blog provides a useful starting point for those actions.
What is changing?
