Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP)
The Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs is one of the premier civil rights agencies in the federal government. For the past 45 years OFCCP has been on the front lines of protecting workers, promoting diversity, and enforcing the laws that require those who do business with the federal government–contractors and subcontractors–to ban discrimination in employment.
Nearly one in four American workers is employed by a federal contractor, representing close to 200,000 businesses with contracts amounting to $700 billion. Given this breadth of purview, OFCCP’s enforcement actions send a clear message that when it comes to creating a level playing field for workers, the United States Government puts its money where its mouth is.
The President and the Secretary of Labor made OFCCP’s worker protection activities a priority of this administration and, as a result, our office has been expanding. Anyone interested in a career in civil rights and public service is encouraged to check out the following job openings at OFCCP’s national headquarters in Washington, DC, and our offices around the country.
