Program Description:

More and more companies are doing business with the U.S. government – either directly with federal agencies or, even more often, indirectly by providing goods or services to a government contractor. While these ventures can be lucrative, they come with strings attached. Unfortunately, many companies are simply unaware of the associated legal obligations or don't understand how to fully comply. This webinar will provide a national perspective on the following critical issues:

  • When is a business required to have an Affirmative Action Plan
  • How can such a Plan be prepared and maintained on a cost-effective basis
  • What is a "desk audit" and how does a company respond and comply when one is initiated
  • The OFCCP’s directive regarding pay discrimination
  • An overview of new and proposed federal regulations that will affect your business
