OFCCP Update For HR: How To Avoid The Latest Compliance Tripwires

Webinar: ID# 1023036
Recorded On-Demand
About This Course:
The Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) is continuing to focus on identifying systemic inequalities in pay and abolishing discrimination in the construction industry. It’s also taking a sharper look these days at bias against LGBT employees and contractors in all industries.

While the OFCCP’s spotlight is shining particularly brightly on the construction industry, the agency is digging deep for systemic inequalities across the board so every federal contractor needs to be prepared for OFCCP scrutiny and audits.

Join us for an in-depth webinar when David S. Fortney, H. Juanita Beecher, and Burton J. Fishman, all seasoned attorneys with extensive experience with the OFCCP regulations, will explain the compliance tripwires to watch out for, and how to handle and survive any interviews or reviews by the OFCCP. You’ll get a clear explanation of how new OFCCP regulations may affect your organization, what to be aware of, and how to be prepared for anything the OFCCP might dig up.

Learning Objectives
  • Why HR and employers should review internal pay practices and conduct an internal audit for possible inequities
  • What the OFCCP considers discriminatory wage practices, and what it’s looking for with regard to wage statements provided to contractors and employees
  • How to ensure that wage statements include hours worked and how pay is calculated for contractors
  • How to prepare compensation managers for a possible OFCCP audit or interview
  • And much more!
