Program:
During President Obama’s first term, the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) was extremely active, including initiating aggressive compliance audits resulting in the demand and collection of higher penalties for non-compliance. During President Obama’s second term, many anticipate even greater OFCCP activity, including more audits, more regulations, and even stronger enforcement efforts. Join this panel, including a corporate Director of Employment Practices who has significant experience with OFCCP audits, a former Assistant District Director for San Antonio and Director for Denver with the OFCCP, and Fulbright labor and employment lawyers with extensive experience in OFCCP compliance and audits, as they engage in a lively and current discussion of hot OFCCP issues. The discussion will include how to prepare for an OFCCP audit, the OFCCP’s new proposals regarding individuals with disabilities and veterans, and other OFCCP compliance initiatives.
