OFCCP Proposes Updated Sex Discrimination Rule

On January 28, 2015, the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs announced a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking updating the rules that govern how federal contractors and subcontractors prohibit sex discrimination. The proposal would rescind outdated guidance, align requirements with current law and better address the realities of today's workplaces. OFCCP’s proposed rule deals with a variety of barriers to equal opportunity and fair pay, including pay discrimination, sexual harassment, hostile work environments, a lack of workplace accommodations for pregnant women as well as gender identity and family caregiving discrimination.

On April 1, 2015, the comment period was extended to April 14, 2015.
