Patricia A. Shiu, Director of the U.S. Department of Labor?s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs, will be leaving the agency, according to information announced today during a public meeting held by the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. Director Shiu was appointed as Director of OFCCP in 2009 by the Obama Administration.
