Recent Significant Developments at OFCCP
In this fast-paced two-day annual Mid-Year Update Webinar, John Fox will ensure you know how and when to comply with all of the new compliance obligations incumbent upon federal contractors.
Each session will be two hours long and each will have two Question and Answer periods (after 45 minutes and after the first hour and a half). John sees Part A as useful to prepare you for Part B.
New Development: We'll be covering the February 25, 2016, Department of Laborís Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) to implement Executive Order (EO) 13706, Establishing Paid Sick Leave for Federal Contractors. The EO requires certain parties that contract with the Federal Government to provide their employees with up to 7 days of paid sick leave annually, including paid leave allowing for family care, and directs the Secretary of Labor to issue regulations by September 30, 2016, to implement the Orderís requirements.
Part A: Recent Significant Developments: What's going on with this Agency now anyhow?
The sharp turn OFCCP has taken in its previously robust regulatory program: What to expect next; What's happening with OFCCP audits, and why? The five things contractors need to address to avoid findings of violations in OFCCP audits; The two things contractors must do to avoid paying back pay in audits; The three things federal contractors still routinely get wrong from OFCCP's blizzard of change in 2013-2014; OFCCP's continuing move to specialization and the practical implications that movement has to defend audits; Practical suggestions on how to defend the current style of fissured OFCCP audit now unfolding; Contractor options following OFCCP's curious and unauthorized re-definition of who is a "Protected Veteran;" How to handle OFCCP's new unpublicized change of position on jurisdictional and AAP thresholds; Practical options to handle the unforeseen implications that OFCCP's Pay Transparency Act has on contractor settlement and release agreements; The current catalogue of changes in policy OFCCP has silently made and which are catching contractors by surprise; The one thing contractors must change when they cease being a federal contractor; Is there a legal problem if contractors force hire minorities and/or women in pursuit of diversity? How to handle the EEOC's and OFCCP's attacks on merit selection and pay systems.
Part B: The Unvarnished Truth: John Fox Addresses How to Properly Handle OFCCP Compensation Audits and Related Issues
John has spoken only once publicly about how to handle compensation issues in OFCCP audits in the last five years, and now promises to reveal his candid and surprising conclusions which he has previously shared only with clients.
How to properly handle the new sense of fissured OFCCP compensation audits; Why almost no federal contractor can or should be undertaking regression analyses; OFCCP's role in the EEOC's proposed EEO-1 Report revisions re: compensation; Understanding what happened to OFCCP's proposed Equal Pay Report to understand OFCCP's coming audit selection system; What contractors should be doing about compensation issues in contrast to the typical "Hire Me to Do a Pay Equity Study" advice.
