Affirmative Action for Individuals With Disabilities in Federal 
Employment; Correction

AGENCY: Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.

ACTION: Final rule; correction.


SUMMARY: The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC or 
Commission) is correcting a final rule that appeared in the Federal 
Register of January 3, 2017 (82 FR 654). The document amended the 
regulations that require federal agencies to engage in affirmative 
action for individuals with disabilities, clarifying the obligations 
that the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 imposes on federal agencies, as 
employers, that are over and above the obligation not to discriminate 
on the basis of disability. The document published January 3 neglected 
to indicate its effective date. This

document corrects that omission. The applicability date remains January 
3, 2018.

DATES: Effective March 6, 2017.

Counsel, (202) 663-4665, or Aaron Konopasky, Senior Attorney-Advisor, 
(202) 663-4127 (voice), or (202) 663-7026 (TTY), Office of Legal 
Counsel, U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. (These are not 
toll free numbers.) Requests for this document in an alternative format
