Employment/Rights – Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) proposes new federal hiring requirements

The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission has issued a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) that would establish new affirmative action obligations on federal government agencies. It would require agencies to adopt affirmative action plans with a goal of achieving a twelve percent representation rate of people with disabilities in their workforce and an additional goal of achieving a two percent representation rate of individuals with targeted disabilities. People with targeted disabilities are those listed on Form SF-256 of the Office of Personnel Management. Additionally, the agencies must provide personal assistants to employees with disabilities who require such assistance in order to work or participate in work-related travel, unless the provision of those services would impose an undue hardship on the agency. The proposed rule was published on Feb. 24; public comments are due on April 25.

  1. I have a problem, its my daughter in law that is working as a caregiver for elder woman. She works for 7.25 an hour and this week she will be working 96 hours in one week. She doesn’t get paid for overtime, holidays just a straight 7.25 an hour. she will be working 96 hours this week and 96 hours next week. She is a single parent and needs the money even at 7.25 per hour. Please let me know if anything can be done about this labor practice that just is not right. nativewoman247@yahoo.com
