You’ll learn what your obligations are as a federal contractor so you can avoid penalties and successfully defend your organization in the event of an OFCCP audit.
The Good part of affirmative action for the employer is its goal: that all persons be treated equally. Who can argue with that?
The Bad part of the government’s Affirmative Action policy is that it requires companies who do business with state or federal governments to annually prepare an inordinate amount of paperwork involving what can be an extremely complex analysis of the company’s employment practices – recruiting efforts, applications, hiring, firing, promotions, etc.
The Ugly part of the government’s Affirmative Action practices is that it gives the OFCCP Compliance Officers the legal right to examine any and all of the company’s employment transactions searching out anything they see that might be discrimination and then take action against the company on behalf of the affected employees for what can be millions of dollars. In essence, the OFCCP second guesses all of the company’s decisions and if it disagrees, asks the company officials to defend their actions.
This webinar will give you the tools on what is needed to create your affirmative action plans, how to do meaningful recruitment efforts, and how to defend during an audit.
