Statement by OFCCP Director Craig Leen Regarding Updates Between OFCCP and Oracle America

WASHINGTON, DC – Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) Director Craig Leen issued the following statement regarding updates between OFCCP and Oracle America:

“After nearly four years of litigation and investing extensive resources, the Department of Labor has determined not to appeal the 278-page Recommended Decision and Order of the Administrative Law Judge in OFCCP v. Oracle America.

“The ALJ held a nine-day trial and based much of his opinion on credibility findings and a lack of supporting qualitative evidence. The Solicitor of Labor and I have decided not to pursue the case further because we believe the likelihood of prevailing on appeal is low and because OFCCP no longer evaluates compensation in the manner rejected by the ALJ in this case. Instead, OFCCP will learn from the decision in an effort to continue improving the efficacy of its critically important compensation program.

“In conjunction with the Department’s decision not to appeal, Oracle has agreed to dismiss Oracle America, Inc. v. U.S. Department of Labor, a civil action in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia that challenged OFCCP’s enforcement authority.

“OFCCP will also administratively close the pending audits for Oracle establishments started before the OFCCP v. Oracle America case but will continue other existing audits.”
