OFCCP Director Ondray Harris issued his first directive 2018-01
The first Directive of the year and the first signed by new OFCCP Director Harris will ensure that all federal contractors will receive a pre-determination notice (PDN) prior to the issuing of a Notice of Violation. The PDN will inform federal contactors of the agency’s preliminary findings of employment discrimination. OFCCP previously used the PDN for systemic discrimination cases and allowed regional and district offices discretion to decide if they wanted to issue a PDN prior to issuing the Notice of Violation. The goal of Directive 2018-01 is to provide transparency, consistency and uniform protocol for OFCCP staff to follow across of its regions for all discrimination cases.
