A BCGI Platinum Webinar Presentation on Friday, September 20th
Join Biddle Consulting Group’s Executive Vice President, Dr. Patrick Nooren for an in-depth review of the OFCCP’s Section 503 Final Rule.
On August 27, 2013, Vice President Biden announced two new rules that represent an historic advance for veterans and individuals with disabilities. In conjunction with the announcement, the OFCCP announced that Federal contractors will be required to demonstrate good faith efforts as well as meet certain metrics for hiring rates of veterans and employment percentages for those with disabilities, within a 180 days of final publication of the rules. It is anticipated that Contractors developing AAPs shortly after the first of the year (approximately March 1) will be required to include such metrics in their annual affirmative action plan.
The Section 503 rule establishes an aspirational 7% utilization goal for the employment of individuals with disabilities.
You can read the Final Rule on the Department of Labor’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) website at http://www.dol.gov/ofccp/503Rule/.
During this more in-depth webinar, Patrick will review the highlights to the change and provide feedback to the contracting community regarding the best practices in making the transition to new metrics. This is BCGI’s follow-up webinar to the initial 503 reviews completed Sept 4. This in-depth presentation will discuss calculations and outline the “brass-tax” of both the Section 503 and VEVRAA rules.
