OFCCP may proceed directly to an enforcement recommendation without issuing an SCN in certain situations, such as when a contractor intimidates or harasses an OFCCP agent, or unreasonably interferes with a complaint investigation or compliance review. If the CO believes that the circumstances warrant moving directly to an enforcement recommendation without issuing an SCN, his or her District Director must seek the approval of the Regional Director. The Regional Director, prior to approving this action, should consult with RSOL.
A CO is not required to issue an SCN when a contractor violates a CA. Under such circumstances, OFCCP issues a 15-Day Notice.406
406. See FCCM 8J –The 15-Day Notice.
