BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.
To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.
To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.
WASHINGTON—The U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance has agreed to requests and granted a 14-day extension for comments on its proposed disability rule, the office said Tuesday.
Under the proposal, which was made late last year, federal contractors and subcontractors would be obligated to set a goal of having 7% of their workforce be people with disabilities.
Observers have said monitoring compliance with the rule would create administrative headaches and present challenges in finding sufficient numbers of disabled workers.
The original deadline was Tuesday, but comments now will be accepted until Feb. 21.
The proposal is available at www.regulations.gov.
