Skip to main content

The Office of Equal Opportunity Services (EOS) is charged with administering a workforce planning program to meet federal requirements for federal contractors. The program helps the University of Houston to continually monitor and evaluate its employment practices to ensure they are free of bias and discrimination based on an individual’s or group’s membership to a protected class.

EOS administers the workforce planning program in compliance with federal mandates and guided by U.S. Labor Department Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (“OFCCP”) regulation 41 C.F.R. Section 60 and its recommendations for compliance with Executive Order 11246, 41 C.F.R. Part 60-741, which implements Section 503 of the Vocational Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended (29 U.S.C. Section 793), and OFCCP regulation 41 C.F.R. Part 60-300, which implements the Vietnam Era Veterans Readjustment Assistance Act of 1974, as amended (38 U.S.C. Sections 4211 and 4212).
