The Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) will complete approximately 3000 compliance reviews this year. Each of those reviews will include a deep dive into contractors’ pay practices. OFCCP remains laser-focused on compensation and is not afraid of litigation. Join us for a discussion of OFCCP’s current compensation directive, the agency’s ever-evolving approach to analyzing pay, and strategies for responding to requests for compensation data. In this session, you’ll get answers to all your compliance questions from OFCCP legal experts.
Attendees will leave the session prepared to successfully navigate their next OFCCP compensation review. Presenters will incorporate interactive exercises in the form of multiple-choice questions.
In this session, you’ll learn:
- What to expect the next time OFCCP audits your company’s pay practices
- Tips on how to prepare your initial compensation data submission
- New strategies for responding to additional requests for information and data and preparing for OFCCP to interview your compensation manager
- The terminology OFCCP uses and how to get comfortable with it
