OFCCP Pilots New Self-Service Options for stakeholders

Beginning this month, OFCCP stakeholders will have new self-service options that will allow them to submit questions and check the status of complaints directly through the OFCCP website.

These new self-service options, Submit a Question to OFCCP and Check Status of Question or Complaint are available on the Workforce Corner section of the OFCCP home page. We hope that these new self-service options will make it easier for stakeholders to submit questions, obtain answers, and access the information they need. Although we encourage stakeholders to take advantage of these self-service tools, all previously available channels can still be used to contact OFCCP.

OFCCP investigators found that Lincoln Electric used an application system and testing process that violated the law by creating an adverse impact on African American workers.
