On April 26, 2011, the U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) issued a notice of proposed rulemaking to eliminate 41 C.F.R. Part 60-250, as obsolete, and replace the existing 41 C.F.R. Part 60-300 with new regulations. These regulations implement the Vietnam Era Veterans’ Readjustment Assistance Act of 1974 (“VEVRAA”), as amended, 38 U.S.C. § 4212. VEVRAA, and OFCCP’s implementing regulations, are designed to eliminate employment discrimination against U.S. military veterans. One of the means of eliminating discrimination is to require contractors to adopt and implement Affirmative Action Plans designed to increase the hiring of covered veterans. The proposed regulations replace many suggested means of compliance with VEVRAA with new mandatory methods of compliance.
