Jobs image with people

The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission issued a final rule in the Federal Register on January 3, 2017, on Affirmative Action for Individuals With Disabilities in Federal Employment.

Effective date: This final rule will be applicable on March 6, 2017.   The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC or Commission) is issuing its final rule to amend the regulations that require federal agencies to engage in affirmative action for individuals with disabilities. These changes clarify the obligations that the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 imposes on federal agencies, as employers, that are over and above the obligation not to discriminate on the basis of disability. The regulation does not apply to the private sector or to state or local governments.
