Federal Contractors Quarterly Briefing: The Fate Of Blacklisting, EEO-1 Reports, Overtime Rules And More Under The ‘New’ DOL And EEOC

Webinar: ID# 1026183
Recorded On-Demand
About This Course:
Learn the practical impact evolving federal contractor compliance requirements will have on your organization.

Since our last Federal Contractors Quarterly Briefing webinar, President Trump has presented his FY2018 budget which proposes to merge OFCCP with EEOC and cut the DOL budget by 20%. Additionally, the “blacklisting” rule was eliminated through the seldom used Congressional Review Act.

Alexander Acosta was confirmed as Secretary of Labor, but no sub-agency heads for Wage and Hour or OFCCP have been named (and there’s still no new Solicitor of Labor). Nevertheless, Secretary Acosta has hit the ground running by proposing to revise the Obama era overtime regulations.

Join us for the third quarterly briefing of 2017 created exclusively for federal contractors. Attorneys and D.C. insiders David Fortney and Nita Beecher will provide the latest compliance update and offer practical solutions for protecting your organization from costly legal liabilities.

You’ll learn:
  • The likelihood of an OFCCP-EEOC merger in FY2019
  • Essential information on the new Secretary of Labor, as well as candidates for OFCCP director and EEOC chair
  • The update on the status of President Obama’s executive orders—and the practical impact on federal contractors
  • Whether the Trump Administration will seek to increase the salary level for exempt employees—and, if so, by how much
  • Which other federal contractor-related regulations are up in the air right now
  • And much more!
