Fed contractors face new disability staffing quotas

by on
in Employment Law,Human Resources

The U.S. Office of Federal Contracts Compliance Programs (OFCCP) proposed a new rule that would require federal contractors and subcontractors to have at least 7% of their workforce contain people with disabilities.

Contractors would have to invite employees to identify themselves as people that meet the government’s expanded definition of “disability” under the Americans with Disabilities Act Amend­­ments Act.

Opponents of the proposal object to the mountain of record-keeping duties that would come with these new rules.

As an individual with a strong resume (I have an MBA in Finance) and a great work record (I have dome IT project management for Deloitte, Kraft Foods and Nabisco who is looking for a job. I welcome this new rule as it allows an organization to take the risk in hiring qualified people who may be “different.” My slight speech impediment makes finding a job so difficult.
