  • In a highly anticipated decision, a Labor Department Administrative Law Judge (ALJ) has found that a Florida hospital’s TRICARE contracts trigger affirmative action obligations under federal law. OFCCP v. Florida Hospital of Orlando, DOL OALJ, No. 2009-OFC- 00002 (October 18, 2010). In so holding, the ALJ upheld the position of the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) that the hospital was a government subcontractor.
