Many of you asked, “What is Section 503 of the Rehabilitation Act?” Section 503 is a higher standard than Title I of the ADA. It requires employers with federal contracts or subcontracts that exceed $10,000 to take affirmative action to hire, retain, and promote qualified individuals with disabilities. All covered contractors and subcontractors must also include a specific equal opportunity clause in each of their nonexempt contracts and subcontracts.

This law is enforced by OFCCP within the U.S. Department of Labor.
