|Action Summary||Amendments to subsections A and B section 180 (Equal employment opportunity.) are needed to address conflicts with federal law. • Subsection A requires amendment to include additional areas of protection currently defined by the EEOC. Changes to 22VAC40-675-180A correspond to 42USC §2000-e-2. • Subsection B requires removal from the chapter. It is no longer a requirement of local jurisdictions to complete an Affirmative Action Plan. According to new updates and information from the Department of Labor, even if a local jurisdiction holds federal contracts, they are exempt from the requirement to develop and maintain a written affirmative action program. Changes to 22VAC40-675-180B correspond to 41 CFR § 60-1.5. Changes proposed in all other sections of the regulation (22VAC40-675-40 and 22VAC40-675-190) are for style, form, correction and syntax, and are intended to improve clarity.|
