(a) When OFCCP believes that a conciliation agreement has been
violated, the following procedures are applicable:
(1) A written notice shall be sent to the contractor setting forth
the violation alleged and summarizing the supporting evidence. The
contractor shall have 15 days from receipt of the notice to respond,
except in those cases in which OFCCP asserts that such a delay would
result in irreparable injury to the employment rights of affected
employees or applicants.
(2) During the 15-day period the contractor may demonstrate in
writing that it has not violated its commitments.
(b) In those cases in which OFCCP asserts that a delay would result
in irreparable injury to the employment rights of affected employees or
applicants, enforcement proceedings may be initiated immediately without
proceeding through any other requirement contained in this chapter.
(c) In any proceedings involving an alleged violation of a
conciliation agreement OFCCP may seek enforcement of the agreement
itself and shall not be required to present proof of the underlying
violations resolved by the agreement.
