Back by popular demand, we are re-airing the February 24, 2015 Disability Matters with Joyce Bender.  Joyce welcomed Patricia A. Shiu, director of the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP)  at the U.S. Department of Labor.  She leads a staff of nearly 650 men and women around the country who are dedicated to protecting workers, promoting diversity, and enforcing the law.  Over the years, OFCCP’s authority has been expanded by the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Vietnam Era Veterans’ Readjustment Assistance Act of 1974.  Ms. Shiu discussed and gave an update on the progress of the Obama Administration’s landmark 503 regulation that requires federal contractors to set a 7 percent hiring target for people with disabilities.
