Compensation Discrimination

Equal pay is a critical issue for workers and their families, and a priority of OFCCP’s equal employment compliance assistance and compliance evaluation activities. On August 24, 2018, OFCCP issued DIR 2018–05 Analysis of Contractor Compensation Practices During a Compliance Evaluation, which outlines OFCCP’s standard procedures for reviewing contractor compensation practices during a compliance evaluation. The directive, which replaces OFCCP DIR 2013-03 (known as Directive 307), clarifies OFCCP’s approach to compensation evaluations including the use of statistical and other evidence, pay analysis groupings and statistical modeling. The directive also reinforces OFCCP’s commitment to greater transparency, consistency and efficiency in compliance evaluations.
