The U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) continues to keep its promise to “aggressively enforce” the affirmative action requirements for federal contractors. The aggressive enforcement pace continues to accelerate. As a result, federal contractors and subcontractors are struggling to keep up with a shifting regulatory landscape which has experienced numerous major changes, and is the source of continuing uncertainty. The OFCCP’s new regulations and directives, coupled with President Obama’s frequent Executive Orders, have all created tremendously heavier compliance burdens, involving increased budgetary needs to meet these challenges. As we go through the second half of 2015, however, the risks of non-compliance seem too great to be ignored, but the problem is not only digesting what has already taken place, but also getting ready for what will happen over the remainder of 2015 and even into next year. One way of getting prepared is to have a comprehensive compliance calendar which helps you to understand not only the deadlines for what is already “on the books,” but also for what is coming. Please join Cheryl Behymer, attorney at law, as she provides her third quarter analysis and guidance on how to maximize your OFCCP Compliance Calendar so that you’ll be ready for what the OFCCP has in store for federal contractors and subcontractors.
WHAT YOU’LL LEARN
Ensure that your HR, compliance, legal and executive team members all understand the new requirements and identify strategies going forward to address these issues and more:
- Possible new paid sick leave requirements
- New minimum wage requirements
- Updates and best practices for data collection requirements for Section 503 (individuals with disabilities) and VEVRAA (veterans)
- LGBT non-discrimination and affirmative action requirements
- OFCCP’s compensation focus, including the recent Equal Pay Report, pay transparency, minimum wage, etc.
- New VETS-4212 Report which has replaced the VETS-100 Report
- Preparing for the new requirements for OFCCP audits under the revised scheduling letter
- Fair pay and safe workplaces reporting
- Other changes you’ll likely be dealing with over the remainder of 2015 and into 2016
- AND MUCH MORE!
