Executive Summary: Just two days before the Thanksgiving holiday, the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) issued a proposed scheduling letter and itemized listing seeking a number of additional documents and data at the initial stage of a compliance review. The proposed scheduling letter and itemized listing were published for public comment on November 21. The OFCCP last revised its scheduling letter and itemized listing in April 2020. This most recent proposal, if approved, will exponentially increase the compliance burden on federal contractors and will ensure that every compliance review is a deep dive into contractors’ EEO practices regardless of whether such a detailed level of review is necessary.
D.C. Noncompete Ban, Years in the Making: On January 25, 2021, FordHarrison published a Legal Alert indicating that Washington, D.C. would soon implement a ban on noncompete agreements. As noted, the Ban on Non-Compete Agreements Amendment Act of 2020 was considered one of the most far-reaching prohibitions on noncompete agreements in the country. However, feedback from the business community prompted the D.C. Council to revisit the Act, delaying its implementation. Finally, the D.C. Non-Compete Clarification Amendment Act of 2022 (the “Amendment”) went into effect on October 1, 2022. This newly amended version, while less far-reaching, is still a significant ban on the use of noncompete agreements and includes important changes that every D.C. employer should know.
