Title: Affirmative Action and Nondiscrimination Obligations of Contractors and Subcontractors: Evaluation of Recruitment and Placement Results Under Section 503

Abstract: This Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) 41 CFR part 60-741, implements the nondiscrimination and affirmative action provisions of section 503 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended (Section 503). This NPRM would strengthen the affirmative action requirements for Federal contractors and subcontractors. The NPRM 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 NPRM would also make revisions to recordkeeping requirements.
