COLUMBIA, MD—May 17, 2011, The Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP), an agency of the U.S. Department of Labor, enforces regulations under the Vietnam Era Veterans’ Readjustment Assistance Act (VEVRAA)—enabling them to audit federal contractors and subcontractors who do not meet affirmative action regulations. The OFCCP’s focus on Veteran outreach in audits has been gaining momentum during the past two years. Patricia Shiu, Director of the OFCCP, has made it clear that monitoring these efforts by federal contractors is a priority for the agency.

Berkshire’s latest white paper provides detailed explanations of the most recent OFCCP Veterans compliance requirements, along with what to expect in the next 12 to 18 months.

According to author Charu Avasthy, “There are a number of ways the OFCCP is enforcing Veterans outreach. It’s important federal contractors and subcontractors are aware of these requirements to ensure overall compliance success for their organizations.”
