U.S. Department of Labor-Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs-Need an Opinion Letter?

By: Christine V. Williams on 01/24/2019

U.S. Department of Labor-Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs is requesting that anyone who would like an opinion letter on a particular issue request one.  Here is the wording from the post OFCCP sent out.

On November 30, 2018, OFCCP published Directive (DIR) 2019–03 outlining steps it intends to take to enhance the agency’s existing Help Desk. One of those steps was to incorporate Opinion Letters to provide fact-specific guidance about OFCCP’s jurisdictional coverage, regulations, and policies.

We will be regularly monitoring Help Desk inquiries for issues suitable to be turned into anonymous Opinion Letters upon consent of the submitter.  However, in order to ensure these letters are truly responsive to stakeholder questions and concerns, we are inviting direct input from you or your legal counsel.

Please reach out through the Help Desk portal to submit suggestions for issues that you would like to see addressed in specific Opinion Letters.  You may also email OFCCPOpinionLetters@dol.gov
