History of Industry Liaison Groups – Overview

Industry Liaison Group (ILGs) is a concept, spawned by the U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance (OFCCP) programs in the early 1980′s to encourage open communication between industry and the OFCCP. The objectives have expanded since the ILG’s beginnings to include partnerships with other government agencies, like the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). Local ILGs are in every Department of Labor (DOL) region.
