OFCCP enforces three anti-discrimination laws, Executive Order 11246, Section 503 of the Rehabilitation Act, and the Vietnam Era Veterans’ Readjustment Assistance Act. These laws make it illegal for companies doing business with the Federal Government to discriminate against applicants and employees based on race, color, religion, sex, national origin, disability or status as a protected veteran in any aspect of employment, including hiring, firing, pay, benefits, job assignments, promotions, layoffs, training and other employment related activities.

We protect workers, promote diversity and enforce the laws which hold those doing business with the Federal Government – contractors and subcontractors – to the very reasonable standard that they not discriminate in employment.

Organizer

Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs-Memphis Area Office

The purpose of the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) is to enforce, for the benefit of job seekers and wage earners, the contractual promise of affirmative action and equal employment opportunity required of those who do business with the Federal government.

In carrying out its responsibilities, the OFCCP uses the following enforcement procedures:

  • Offers technical assistance to federal contractors and subcontractors to help them understand the regulatory requirements and review process.
  • Conducts compliance evaluations and complaint investigations of federal contractors and subcontractors personnel policies and procedures.
  • Obtains Conciliation Agreements from contractors and subcontractors who are in violation of regulatory requirements.
  • Monitors contractors and subcontractors progress in fulfilling the terms of their agreements through periodic compliance reports.
  • Forms linkage agreements between contractors and Labor Department job training programs to help employers identify and recruit qualified workers.
  • Recommends enforcement actions to the Solicitor of Labor.
  • The ultimate sanction for violations is debarment - the loss of a company's federal contracts. Other forms of relief to victims of discrimination may also be available, including back pay for lost wages.
