Workshop 4

Audit Prep Starts Now (Even If You’re Not on the CSAL)
Christopher Chrisbens, Christopher Patrick, (Jackson Lewis)  

Audit preparation doesn’t have to be scary.  Or hard.  This session will empower attendees to ensure ongoing compliance and prepare for an audit well before it’s scheduled.  Participants will learn:
• What is required to submit in an OFCCP audit
• Little-known technical obligations that OFCCP enforces to ensure ongoing compliance
• How to develop a game plan to balance your compliance risk, competing time commitments, and calmly respond to an OFCCP audit letter
