OFCCP Issues a COVID-19 National Interest Exemption

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the U.S. Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs issued a temporary exemption from certain federal contracting requirements for a period of three months, from March 17, 2020 to June 17, 2020.

According to the U.S. Department of Labor website, new federal contracts providing COVID-19 relief are exempt from several obligations under Executive Order 11246, the Vietnam Era Veterans’ Readjustment Assistance Act, and Section 503 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. However, contractors must continue to abide by the nondiscrimination and nonretaliation obligations under OFCCP’s laws, according to OFCCP’s list of frequently asked questions.

More information on the exemption can be found on the DOL website.
