The U.S. Department of Labor has extended for two weeks the comment period for its proposed rule governing the obligations of federal contractors and subcontractors not to discriminate on the basis of sex in their employment practices.

The extension gives extra time for the public to comment on the impact of the U.S. Supreme Court’s March 25 decision in Young v. United Parcel Service, which involved application of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 to pregnancy discrimination in the workplace.

The Labor Department’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs follows Title VII principles when enforcing the law against employment discrimination by federal contractors and subcontractors.

OFCCP published a notice of proposed rulemaking in the Federal Register on Jan. 30, with a March 31 deadline to submit comments. The comment period now extends through Tuesday, April 14.

Read and comment on the proposed rule.
