Networking Opportunity in 2014! Thursday Evening Reception in all Four Locations!

This was a "watershed" year with case law developments which have opened the door for OFCCP to completely change its historic audit procedures. Now, more than ever before, careful attention to the format and reporting of AAPs is critical to successful audits. Without question, things have continued to change at OFCCP and we will ensure that we bring you up-to-date with every new development. We will examine the rights of contractors and identify tools available to exercise those rights in audits, and human resource systems to minimize potential legal and financial risk.

This year's program is co-chaired by John Fox and David Copus. OFCCP Director Patricia Shiu will be opening the Briefing in San Francisco, and is invited to the Chicago location.

Agenda topics covered in detail include:
