OFCCP Director Shiu to Depart Agency Nov. 6
Patricia A. Shiu, the director of the Labor Department agency tasked with enforcing federal contractors’ affirmative action and nondiscrimination obligations, will step down Nov. 6 after seven years of service, a staffer on the House Committee on Education and the Workforce confirmed today to Bloomberg BNA.
Under Shiu’s leadership, the DOL’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs has been known for its aggressive regulatory reform and deeper dives into contractor data and records during audits, especially when it came to seeking out pay discrimination.
Since October 2009, when Shiu became the OFCCP’s director, the agency finalized rules that for the first time required contractors to adopt hiring goals for disabled individuals and benchmarks for covered military veterans. The OFCCP also issued final rules prohibiting contractors from implementing pay secrecy policies and discriminating against applicants and employees based on sexual orientation and gender identity. Additionally, the agency updated sex discrimination rules that were more than 40 years old.
The Labor Department hasn’t yet responded to Bloomberg BNA’s Oct. 18 request for comment.
