Are You Ready for the New OFCCP Regulations?
Wednesday, January 15, 2014
2:15 p.m. EST

The most sweeping changes in federal affirmative action regulations in many years take effect in March 2014. The new regulations expand the affirmative action requirements for covered veterans and disabled persons. For the first time, federal contractors and subcontractors will be responsible for specific outreach, hiring and advancement efforts for covered veterans and disabled persons, and will be responsible to show good faith efforts to reach specific goals for those groups.

At this program, we will discuss the new regulations and provide you with tips for how best to come into compliance, including the necessary revisions for your written affirmative action plans (AAPs).

Two Additional Affirmative Action Compliance Programs

Also, because so many companies will be revising their AAP’s in the first quarter of 2014, we will have two additional webinar presentations that will give helpful tips for compliance with federal affirmative action laws, including best practices for revising your AAPs and for handling an audit by the OFCCP.
