  • The Forgotten Regulations
    by Bill Osterndorf - March 19, 2019
    The last five years have been a time of monumental change for the U.S. Department of Labor's Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP). Five major regulatory changes to the federal affirmative action regulations went into effect between 2014 and 2016, and 13 new directives have been issued since February of 2018.
