Discrimination on the Basis of Sex
Document Number: 2016-13806
Type: Rule
Date: 2016-06-15
Agency: Department of Labor, Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs
The U.S. Department of Labor's Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs publishes this final rule to detail obligations that covered Federal Government contractors and subcontractors and federally assisted construction contractors and subcontractors must meet under Executive Order 11246, as amended, to ensure nondiscrimination in employment on the basis of sex and to take affirmative action to ensure that applicants and employees are treated without regard to their sex. This rule substantially revises the existing Sex Discrimination Guidelines, which have not been substantively updated since 1970, to align them with current law and legal principles and address their application to contemporary workplace practices and issues. The provisions in this final rule articulate well-established case law and/or applicable requirements from other Federal agencies and therefore the requirements for affected entities are largely unchanged by this rule.
