Title: Action and Nondiscrimination Obligations of Contractors and Subcontractors Regarding Protected Veterans

Abstract:This Rulemaking would revise the regulations in 41 CFR parts 60-250 and 60-300 implementing the nondiscrimination and affirmative action provisions of VEVRAA (referred to as section 4212). This Rulemaking would strengthen the affirmative action requirements for Federal contractors and subcontractors.

The rule would also make revisions to recordkeeping requirements.
