OFCCP IS BACK, AND BACK STRONG. Team Trump has finally showed up and change is in the air!

The OFCCP has issued seven new Directives in the last 6 months, including three in the last two weeks, and has also recently taken to issuing “notices” on many subjects. Acting OFCCP Director Craig Leen, who will be speaking during the opening session in Chicago, has also issued no fewer than 6 new policies in the last two weeks alone impacting OFCCP audits dramatically and how Government contractors should defend them. Additionally, OFCCP has announced a new wave of audits, a new form of audit, and is picking up the pace of audits while on its way to another historically large back pay collection year. This will be the most information-packed Affirmative Action Update we have had since 2014.

This year John C. Fox, Esq. and our esteemed faculty will see how Plaintiffs and the federal government understand and view corporate hiring and compensation systems. Learning how your systems may be attacked and where the perceived weak spots are is valuable information.

Our faculty bring a wealth of recent hands-on knowledge from the Agency and EEOC, including hearing from current Acting OFCCP Director, Craig Leen and Ondray Harris, immediate past Director of OFCCP, along with the architect of OFCCP's discrimination audits for the last ten years, former DOL Senior Advisor Pam Coukos, and the driving force behind the EEOC's very aggressive Obama-era litigation agenda, former EEOC General Counsel David Lopez. Labor economist Dr. Cary Elliott will discuss how to analyze corporate compensation systems during this sensitive time and Candee Chambers will again round out the faculty with her considerable HR expertise.

Topics included in our 2018 Agenda include:

  • What’s on the OFCCP Director’s Desk
  • Recent Significant OFCCP and EEOC Developments
  • Using Apprentice Programs to Help Satisfy OFCCP Obligations
  • Why Pay Equity Programs Should Go Much Farther and Much Deeper, Much Sooner than You Think
  • Defending Trump Administration OFCCP Audits
  • Frontiers in Civil Rights
  • Talent Acquisition Rules of Engagement: When Can You Use the “Rooney Rule?”
  • How to Prepare a Database for the Statistical Analysis of Pay Equity

    We also want to bring to your attention the Affirmative Action Workshop which precedes the 2-day program in Chicago and Austin.
