Executive Order 11246: Sex Discrimination Regulations

The U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs has published revised regulations that update our sex discrimination guidelines from 1970 to align with current law under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and address the realities of today’s workplaces. The regulations deal with a variety of sex–based barriers to equal employment, including compensation discrimination, sexual harassment, hostile work environments, failure to provide workplace accommodations for pregnant workers, and family caregiving discrimination. The updated regulations apply to all covered federal contractors and subcontractors.
