Plenary Session: Recent Significant OFCCP Policy Developments

John Fox (Fox, Wang & Morgan P.C.), Candee Chambers (DirectEmployers)

During this session participants will learn about OFCCP policy developments, including failure-to-hire, compensation and affirmative action claims arising in OFCCP audits. Presenters will also discuss how the new American Community Survey census data can negatively impact contractors and how to avoid its effects on AAPs. Participants will have many “learning moments” and leave the conversation with practical tips to apply when developing AAPs and defending OFCCP audits considering current OFCCP policy initiatives.
