Webinar: ID# 1023056
Recorded On-Demand
About This Course:
The Department of Labor's Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) enforces the affirmative action and equal employment compliance rules that federal contractors and subcontractors must operate under. And it's more serious than ever about investigating compensation practices for evidence of discrimination.

In recent years, the OFCCP has bombarded federal contractors with a slew of new proposed regulations tied to pay transparency and pay reporting. Central to the OFCCP's compliance assault on federal contractors and subcontractors is its mission to ensure that their employees are compensated fairly.

It also looking for more thorough and detailed information, particularly when it comes to hiring practices for veterans and workers with disabilities. It's no longer enough just to show outreach to these groups; the OFCCP wants accurate and updated measurements of hiring outcomes.

The OFCCP means business about auditing federal contractors and subcontractors to ensure that base salaries, bonuses, and opportunities for advancement and training are being offered to workers on an equal employment basis.

Join us for an in-depth webinar led by Burton J. Fishman, and Elizabeth B. Bradley, two seasoned employment attorneys at Fortney & Scott, who regularly advise federal contractors and subcontractors on their OFCCP compliance obligations. They'll teach you the critical components of a comprehensive self-audit of your compensation practices to ensure that you're in compliance with the OFCCP's rules.
