AGC Criticizes OFCCP's Proposal to Revive Monthly Employment Utilization Report

The association raises concerns over data privacy and undue burdens from the proposed reinstatement of comprehensive monthly employment reports, discontinued since 1995.

AGC recently submitted comments on the U.S. Department of Labor’s (DOL) Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs’ (OFCCP) proposal to reinstate the requirement of the submission of Monthly Employment Utilization Reports (CC-257) by covered federal and federally assisted contractors.

Before being discontinued in 1995, construction contractors were required to submit Form CC-257 to OFCCP on a monthly basis and to provide information on construction trade employee work hours by race/ethnicity, gender, and trade in the covered geographic area where the work was performed. This proposal would reinstate the reporting requirement with additional data and requirements.

AGC supported the 1995 discontinuation of the reporting requirements and criticizes this proposed reinstatement. Specifically, comments addressed concerns that:

  • OFCCP has not fully justified the reinstatement of discontinued Form CC-257;
  • Data privacy and protection is not addressed and of paramount concern; and
  • OFCCP underestimates the burden on contractors.
