Federal contractors are required to comply with multiple highly nuanced rules relating to affirmative action, recordkeeping, pay equity, and nondiscrimination. These rules are enforced by OFCCP, an agency that has been very successful in recovering substantial monetary awards from contractors and obtaining other relief, which can include contractor debarment. 

Under the leadership of a new and highly energized director, OFCCP's enforcement of its rules and its approach toward contractor audits are changing dramatically.  Between just August 2018 and February 2019, OFCCP issued eleven new important directives that contractors (including Alaska Native Corporations) need to consider as part of their compliance efforts and more changes are on their way.  For some contractors, these changes may make compliance more meaningful and even less costly. Other contractors, however, may face higher costs and increased risks. 

This session, led by Littler attorneys who focus on federal contractor affirmative action programs and other OFCCP employer requirements, will cover these new developments including specific recommendations for action. Among the issues to be discussed will be OFCCP's new directives involving pay equity, focused reviews, AAP verification, contractor recognition, and religious exemptions. We will also discuss audit trends, the agency's expectations regarding affirmative action for the disabled, best practices for promoting diversity and inclusion, tips for preparing for an OFCCP audit and Littler's new tools for supporting affirmative action and employee equity compliance efforts.

A general compliance update will also be provided to address some of the recent legal changes and enforcement initiatives under the new National Labor Relations Board and State of Alaska administration.

This event is generously co-hosted by the Anchorage office of Parker Smith & Feek.

Light breakfast refreshments will be served. Please RSVP as space is limited.
