RIN: 1250-AA02

Publication ID: Fall 2011

Title: Affirmative Action and Nondiscrimination Obligations of Contractors and Subcontractors Regarding Individuals With Disabilities

Abstract: This Rulemaking would amend 41 CFR part 60-741, the nondiscrimination and affirmative action provisions of section 503. This Rulemaking would strengthen the affirmative action requirements for Federal contractors and subcontractors. The rule would amend the regulations to require that Federal contractors and subcontractors increase linkages and conduct more substantive analyses of recruitment and placement actions taken under section 503. The rule would also increase the contractor's data collection obligations, make revisions to recordkeeping requirements, and establish a "good faith" placement goal to assist in measuring the effectiveness of the contractor's affirmative action efforts. In addition, the rule will incorporate changes to the nondiscrimination provisions necessitated by the passage of the ADA Amendments Act of 2008.
