Get the Latest on OFCCP’s Sex Discrimination Guidelines for Reduced Liability at the Workplace 

The OFCCP’s updated sex discrimination guidelines, called the Final Rule, “Discrimination on the Basis of Sex”, clarifies the connection between Title VII Civil Rights law and OFCCP’s regulations.  The Final Rule, according to OFCCP’s Fact Sheet, facilitates contractors’ understanding and compliance with Title VII, which results in a possible reduction in contractor costs as well as an increase in labor-market efficiency.

The new guidelines go into effect Aug. 15, 2016, and have been specifically updated to include explicit protections in several areas. While some of the new guidelines will be of no surprise to employers, merely echoing existing case law and recent OFCCP/EEOC interpretations, other provisions are more aggressive in scope and offer a preview of the agency’s strict enforcement stance in the near future.

The Final Rule is necessary to ensure contractors are consistent with today’s workplace culture and challenges.  It prohibits contractors and subcontractors from discriminating against employees and applicants based on their religion, race, color, national origin, sex, sexual orientation, and gender identity (protected classes).  The Rule makes clear that discrimination of the protected classes includes issues related to hiring, promotions, recruitment, job assignments, training, benefits, pay, and discipline, as well as harassment.  The Final Rule includes examples of prohibited sex discrimination and best practices in the prevention of discrimination. Specific examples include the following:

  • Equal benefits to male and female employees participating in fringe-benefit plans
  • Sexual harassment prohibition
  • Equal access for men and women for job opportunities
  • Protection for all workers who are caregivers for their family
  • Transgender rights and protections
  • Sex stereotype protections
  • Consistent with the Religious Freedom Restoration Act and other protections for religiously affiliated contractors

Join expert speaker Dr. Susan Strauss Ed.D., in this presentation which discusses sex discrimination and preventative measures in the workplace--resulting in lower turnover and absenteeism, higher morale and productivity which translates into financial incentives and reduction in discrimination costs.
