DOL Issues Final Rule on Discrimination on the Basis of Sex
The U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs has published this final rule to detail obligations that covered federal government contractors, subcontractors, federally-assisted construction contractors, and subcontractors must meet under Executive Order 11246, as amended, to ensure nondiscrimination in employment on the basis of sex, and to take affirmative action to ensure that applicants and employees are treated without regard to their sex This rule substantially revises the existing Sex Discrimination Guidelines. The provisions in this final rule articulate well-established case law and/or applicable requirements from other federal agencies and, therefore, the requirements for affected entities are largely unchanged by this rule, 81 Fed. Reg. 39108. These regulations are effective August 15, 2016.
