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.
