External Dissemination 41CFR 60-300.44 (f)(6)

Anonymous - Aug 04, 2015
Back to Ask the Experts

How are companies handling the External Dissemination of the Veteran Regulations by the OFCCP? This falls under regulation 41 CFR 60-300.44 Section (f)(6). How are others meeting this regulation? Sending paper letters? Electronic? Posting on a website? Code of Conduct update which is posted on the website?

I’ve received a mixed response on whether this is truly required or a suggestion. The regulation itself says:

(f) External dissemination of policy, outreach and positive recruitment. The contractor shall undertake appropriate outreach and positive recruitment activities such as those listed in paragraphs (f)(1) through (f)(8) of this section that are reasonably designed to effectively recruit qualified disabled veterans, recently separated veterans, other protected veterans, and Armed Forces service medal veterans. It is not contemplated that the contractor will necessarily undertake all the activities listed in paragraphs (f)(1) through (f)(8) of this section or that its activities will be limited to those listed. The scope of the contractor’s efforts shall depend upon all the circumstances, including the contractor’s size and resources and the extent to which existing employment practices are adequate.

Any help and/or guidance would be greatly appreciated.
