Executive Order 13950 Is Officially Revoked

On January 21, 2021, President Biden issued a revocation of President Trump’s Executive Order on Combatting Race and Sex Stereotyping. OFCCP has officially ceased all activities in connection with enforcement of Executive Order 13950 which, among other things, prohibited federal contractors and subcontractors from providing thorough workplace diversity training and programs.  

OFCCP has rescinded the Frequently Asked Questions regarding Executive Order 13950 and will completely shut down the phone hotline and email address established to accept complaints under Executive Order 13950. OFCCP will also administratively close all complaints regarding alleged non-compliance with Executive Order 13950 received through the hotline or any other means.

Additionally, the Agency has explicitly stated that OFCCP will not enforce any of the provisions required by Section 4(a) of Executive Order 13950 contained in government contracts or subcontracts to the extent those provisions have already been included. As a result, contractors are no longer required to provide notice of any commitments under the executive order or include provisions or provide notice in contracts or subcontracts.
