Federal contractors and subcontractors need to take affirmative action to ensure that all individuals have an equal opportunity for employment, pursuant to Executive Order 11246, Section 503 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Vietnam Era Veterans Readjustment Assistance Act of 1974 (VEVRAA).
Violations of these directives can result in steep penalties for affected companies. This includes monetary fines, expensive administrative proceeds, cancellation of federal contracts - and even debarment as a federal contractor.
