If you do business with the U.S. Government, you will want to attend this very important webinar

The Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) within the U.S. Department of Labor is responsible for enforcing the nondiscrimination and affirmative action obligations applicable to federal contractors and subcontractors. Failure to fully comply with these rules puts your government contracts in jeopardy. OFCCP recently received a large increase in funding and personnel, which it intends to devote primarily to enhanced enforcement. Regardless of whether your business is publicly or privately owned, for-profit or non-profit, based in the U.S. or overseas, you need to understand how these new developments will affect your organization.

OFCCP conducts two types of compliance evaluations - "routine" evaluations of traditional contractor establishments and Corporate Management Compliance Evaluations ("CMCEs") of headquarters establishments. Preparing for a CMCE is far more complicated than preparing for a routine compliance evaluation.

The speakers for this webinar will address questions such as:

  • What practices are likely to be audited by OFCCP?
  • What are the differences between a "routine" OFCCP compliance evaluation and a CMCE?
  • How might CMCE audits conducted by the Obama Administration differ from those conducted under the Bush and other prior Administrations?
  • Which executives and managers should be briefed and prepared to participate or be interviewed?
  • Should you take a proactive or a wait-and-see posture with respect to providing information to OFCCP about your executive development programs?
  • How should the opening and closing conferences be structured to ensure that your "good stories" are conveyed?

The speakers will also provide an update on the most current trends emerging from OFCCP's more aggressive enforcement initiatives.
