There are big changes underway at the OFCCP. We’ve been talking about these changes and what they mean for you all month long. In this week’s podcast installment, we’re going to conclude OFCCP month at The Proactive Employer with a discussion about the proposed changes regarding veterans.
On April 26th, the OFCCP published a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking entitled “Affirmative Action and Nondiscrimination Obligations of Contractors and Subcontractors Regarding Protected Veterans.” This proposed rule strengthens affirmative action obligations regarding veterans, increases data collection and production requirements for contractors, and establishes hiring benchmarks for veterans.
Joining us to talk about these changes is Ted Daywalt. Mr. Daywalt is President and CEO of VetJobs, the leading military job board on the Internet. Mr. Daywalt is a retired Navy Captain with 28 years of service. He is a published author and renowned speaker. He frequently speaks to businesses, government agencies and universities on topics ranging from recruiting and retention, international relations, general management, and economic trends. Mr. Daywalt is known nationwide as a veterans advocate. He regularly testifies and works with members of Congress on military, veteran, small business and employment issues. Mr. Daywalt is on the Small Business Council of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and was one of the CEOs invited to the White House Jobs Summit.
