OFCCP Updates Sex Discrimination Guidelines

The Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) has issued a Final Rule updating its sex discrimination guidelines, which were last revised in 1970.

The rule implements Executive Order 11246, which prohibits companies with federal contracts and subcontracts from discriminating in employment on the basis of sex.

According to the rule:

This rule substantially revises the existing Sex Discrimination Guidelines, which have not been substantively updated since 1970, to align them with current law and legal principles and address their application to contemporary workplace practices and issues. 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.

The Final Rule takes effect in 60 days.
