Westgate Ballroom B
Wednesday 06/26/2019 11:30 AM - 12:30 PM Add to calendar
1.00 SHRM PDCs | Competencies: Consultation, HR Expertise, Relationship Management | Intended Audience: Mid-Level
Workplace Application:
Learn how to better manage compliance under the most recent Office of Federal Contractor Compliance Programs (OFCCP) guidelines, and how to leverage the OFCCP’s transparency and collaboration mission to successfully meet compliance obligations. 

The OFCCP’s 2018 release of five directives in two months was the most issued in the shortest period of time. Their purpose was to support the OFCCP’s mission to ensure transparency and collaboration in all stages of its compliance activities. They included rules on transparency in compliance, analysis of compensation practices during reviews, focused compliance reviews, and programs to recognize contractor best practices. Has OFCCP stayed the course since the directives’ release? Have enforcement practices changed for the better? In this session, the presenter will share experiences and observations from real OFCCP interactions, discuss lessons learned, and provide practical recommendations for handling OFCCP compliance under the agency’s latest rules.

Learning Objectives:

  • Learn about the most recent OFCCP directives.
  • Learn how to approach pay equity compliance by understanding how the OFCCP analyzes pay practices.
  • Proactively meet OFCCP compliance obligations by understanding how the agency performs compliance reviews.
  • Leverage the OFCCP’s mission to be transparent and more collaborative, making use of the resources available to support federal contractor compliance.
