OFCCP announced a new directive to provide clear and specific guidelines consistent with the rule of law. The Certainty Directive ensures that contractors know what OFCCP expects of them so they can comply with the law.
Under this new directive, OFCCP is establishing a process to facilitate the continued provision of clarity and certainty in OFCCP policies and practices.
In 2018, OFCCP adopted the four principles of Certainty, Efficiency, Recognition, and Transparency (the “CERT” principles) to improve compliance assistance and customer experience.
With the issuance of the Certainty Directive, OFCCP has published directives in all four areas of the agency’s CERT principles. See the directives:
- Certainty Directive
- Efficiency Directive
- Recognition Directive
- Transparency Directive
