by Sandra Zeigler, Esq. - Jan, 2014
I recently received, from former OFCCP colleagues, a copy of an article posted on Buzzfeed.com on December 4, 2013. The headline read, "Federal Official Refuses to Say Whether Office is Protecting Trans Workers." Apparently, the only response the agency was willing to offer was a reiteration that, "OFCCP follows Title VII precedent in everything." The purpose of this article is to shed some light on what that response may actu...

OFCCP and Data Transparency
by Sandra Zeigler, Esq. - Nov, 2013
Contractors are expected to scrupulously document their efforts to broaden recruitment, detect discrimination and to prepare for potential OFCCP compliance evaluations. OFCCP should similarly be expected to document and make readily available to the public its enforcement accomplishments. Doing so would be consistent with the pledge of government transparency on which this administration prides itself. It would sensitize contr...
