Frequently Asked Questions

What is an Industry Liaison Group?

Industry Liaison Group (ILG) 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, including the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and state and local agencies. Local ILGs are found in every Department of Labor (DOL) region.
