OFCCP – Updated Veterans and Disability Resources.
April 30, 2014
Following its substantial revision of the affirmative action regulations for veterans and individuals with disabilities, the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs is providing resources on its website to assist contractors with their new or enhanced obligations. One of those resources is the “Disability and Veterans Community Resources Directory,” a database of national organizations and local community groups supporting veterans and individuals with disabilities. The purpose of this database is to help contractors find qualified veterans and individuals with disabilities to employ through relationships with these organizations. On April 4, the OFCCP added 24 entities to this database, with the intention of more additions in the near future.
