  • Private employers with 100 or more employees (or fewer than 100 employees if the company is owned by or corporately affiliated with another company and the entire enterprise employs a total of 100 or more employees); and
  • Federal contractors (private employers) subject to Executive Order 11246 who have 50 or more employees and:
