Strategically Sourcing Applicants– Learn What OFCCP Thinks of Common Recruitment Strategies

Presented By Misty Glorioso, HR/AAP consultant at Berkshire Associates, April 10, 2018, 2:00 PM EDT

Each year the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) reviews the recruitment sourcing process and hiring outcome of thousands of federal contractors to ensure compliance. However, many recruiters still follow the standard sourcing process to find talent without strategically accounting for the unique requirements of a compliant recruitment process from the eyes of the OFCCP. JOBfindah Network, in association with Berkshire Associates, is pleased to announce a complimentary Webinar titled “Strategically Sourcing Applicants– Learn What OFCCP Thinks of Common Recruitment Strategies” presented by, Misty Glorioso, affirmative action consultant at Berkshire Associates. Misty will discuss what the OFCCP expects when it comes to federal contractors’ recruiting practices.

The Compensation Interview: “Oh I didn’t mean to say that” and other SALSA Dance Moves To Try

Presented By Tim Orellano, The Human Resources Team, February 27, at 2:00 pm eastern.

 

Compensation discrimination is a hot topic for 2018, and it is a top priority for federal and state enforcement agencies. OFCCP, Wage and Hour, and EEOC often conducts a “compensation interview” to better understand an employer’s compensation practices. However, many employers are often unprepared for such interviews. Many are not able to properly explain their compensation plan and pay decisions, and not prepared to answer the government’s questions. This webinar will focus on how to survive the compensation interview process, do’s and don’ts, and practical strategies for successfully explaining your pay practices to DOL enforcement agencies.

Compliance Enforcement in an Era of Lean Government – How to Prepare for OFCCP Compliance Reviews in 2018

Presented By Shafeequa Giarratani, Ogletree Deakins, December 5, 2017

 

The Trump Administration’s 2018 budget proposes significant cuts for many federal agencies, including that of the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Program (OFCCP). The OFCCP faces more than 16% reduction in budget; and a head count reduction of about 23% from prior year. The acting Director of the OFCCP Tom Dowd, however, promises that the OFCCP agenda will not be affected, and in fact be expanded with programs for more awareness, assistance and enforcement for contractors. That means that the contractors should not equate a budget cut with a lesser number of audits. Indeed, many industry insiders expect that enforcement will actually expand.  To navigate a coordinated focus on awareness, training and enforcement by a ‘lean and mean’ OFCCP needs preparation on the part of Federal contractors.

Affirmative Action Plan Methodology 101

Presented By Cassie Verdon and DIana Sicari, Biddle Consulting Group, September 19, 2017

 

An Affirmative Action Plan (AAP) is the foundation of EEO/OFCCP compliance program. Yet, many professionals make unintended errors. The webinar covers the requirements for being compliant with Executive Order 11246, as amended; Section 503 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended; and the Vietnam Veterans’ Readjustment Assistance Act of 1974, as amended, 38 U.S.C. 4212. and covers topics such as a) Brief history of Affirmative Action, b) Who must create an AAP, c) Requirements of an AAP, d) Common audit requests. Affirmative Action Plans have their roots in the Civil Rights era. Although there are core tenents that have been consistent over time, regulations get updated and changes in presidential administrations shift the focus and direction of the OFCCP. This in turn affects how contractors utilize and maintain their AAPs.  This webinar is designed to educate participants on the background and history of the OFCCP, as well as provide a framework for understanding the basic components of an AAP. The webinar will also focus on regulatory updates under the new presidential administration, review some common audit questions, and provide helpful tips for making all parts of the AAP work together.

How the Trump Administration Will (and will Not) Roll Back the Obama EEO Legacy.

Presented By Matthew Camardella, Jackson Lewis P.C.; July 11, 2017

With a Trump presidency, many have predicted the downfall of Obama-era Executive actions designed to strengthen equal employment and civil rights.  Such predictions may be premature.  In addition to campaign promises to eliminate regulations burdening business, we have heard statements supportive of equal pay and paid family leave.  This suggests certain initiatives (albeit in somewhat different form) may endure.  In this session we will unpack the short- and long-term prospects for the Obama regulatory and enforcement initiatives.  Participants will learn what to expect over the next few years and, importantly, where to focus their organization’s compliance efforts going forward. Participant learning will include the following Equal pay law enforcement, The future of the revised EEO-1 report, LGBT rights under the Trump Administration, EEOC and OFCCP strategic enforcement initiatives, Survival of Obama-era executive orders.
