Join This course On, April 11 2017 at 1:00 PM EST


This webinar will focus on the basic understanding of affirmative action, the recent developments on the compliance front, and how to ensure compliant recruiting practices.

We will begin our session with a brief, but comprehensive, primer on affirmative action. We will discuss the history of affirmative action, its key principles, and current framework for developing compliant programs. We will also discuss the current OFCCP enforcement strategies and trends so that you are well prepared to move forward as we discuss your responsibilities as a contractor and how to meet the latest regulatory challenges. We will specifically focus on your recruiting efforts and how they affect your compliance efforts. From common missteps, to enforcement traps, this webinar will provide practical steps to correcting common issues found in an audit so that you are better positioned for success. You will learn what records to keep, how to deal with internet applicants, what to watch out for, how technology is changing the game, and more in this essential webinar.

Why you should attend: The two years have been the most active period of change at the OFCCP under the Obama Administration to date. The message is clear: OFCCP is better funded, more sophisticated, and more motivated than ever to aggressively enforce affirmative action rules under EO 11246. For the contractor, it is extremely important to comply with these laws or face serious repercussions. Yet, now, more than ever, remaining OFCCP compliant can be one of the toughest challenges an organization faces.With federal employment laws and agency regulatory changes evolving at an exponential rate it is vital to get and stay on top of the sizable body of information.
