Some of the most substantive changes expected include:
- The new scheduling letter, under Item 11, will require contractors to submit individualized compensation data as of the date of the contractor's workforce analysis in its AAP, to include the job title, job group and EEO-1 category for each employee.
- Per the scheduling letter, personnel activity data will be submitted by the five specified race categories (Black, Hispanic, Asian, Native American, and TOMs) instead of by non-minority/minority status.
- The scheduling letter has been changed to reflect recent regulatory changes implemented by Section 503 and VEVRAA.
- OFCCP has also defined compensation to include consideration of hours worked, incentive pay, merit increases, locality pay, and overtime.
One of the most significant redactions from the scheduling letter is the elimination of the proposed requirement that would force contractors to submit personnel activity data (Hires, Promotions and Terminations) by job title AND job group. Instead, the final scheduling letter will allow contractors to submit data by job title OR job group.
Upon completion of the final changes to the Letter, it appears that OMB will approve OFCCP's immediate execution of the letter.
