OFCCP Announces National Exemption For New Contractors Providing COVID-19 Relief Efforts

OFCCP announced last week that from March 17, 2020 through June 17, 2020 (and possibly longer), any
new federal contracts to provide COVID-19 relief efforts will be exempt from the affirmative action obligations under Executive Order 11246, Section 503 of the Rehabilitation Act, and the Vietnam Era Veterans’ Readjustment Assistance Act. The exemption does not apply to existing contracts, and does not apply to the processing of complaints of discrimination in either new or existing contracts.
