If you are a federal contractor, keep reading. Last summer, the Office of Federal Contractor Compliance Programs (OFCCP) issued a notice to all federal contractors that the Center for Investigative Reporting had requested EEO-1 reports for 2016-2020 pursuant to the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA). While the motive is uncertain, it is likely that this media outlet will use the data to post stories about companies whose EEO-1 reports reveal a lack of diversity. Previously, the OFCCP gave federal contractors until September 19, 2022 the opportunity to object to the release of this information via its website. For those of you who missed the deadline, the OFCCP has now given federal contractors another chance to file an objection. The OFCCP has also published a list of companies who are affected by the FOIA request on its website. If your company is on that list, and you want assistance in filing an objection by the new deadline, do not hesitate to contact your Ruder Ware attorney for assistance. The recent post and list of companies can be found here: https://www.dol.gov/agencies/ofccp/submitter-notice-response-portal.
