Federal contractors are required to comply with multiple rules relating to affirmative action, recordkeeping, pay equity, and non-discrimination. These rules are enforced by the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP), a federal agency which can impose significant remedies for non-compliance, including monetary damages, reporting requirements, and debarment. OFCCP's implementation of its rules and its approach toward enforcement are changing dramatically. In the last 18 months, OFCCP has issued more than a dozen new directives, notified 3,500 contractor establishments of a scheduled compliance evaluation, and proposed substantial revisions to its compliance evaluation procedures. 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 will cover all of these new developments, including specific recommendations for action. Among the issues to be discussed will be OFCCP's new directives involving compensation, focused reviews, AAP verification, and contractor recognition. We will also discuss audit trends, the agency's expectations regarding affirmative action for the disabled, how to handle Component 2 of the 2018 EEO-1 Report, and other breaking news.
