You will learn:

  • Candid advice on working with OFCCP
  • Key areas for investigation and enforcement
  • Practical advice and insights on addressing compensation issues in audits
  • Practical strategies for addressing OFCCP’s approach to investigations and enforcement

Credit Offered: CLE and HRCI HR Recertification

This program will offer high-value knowledge for in-house employment counsel, HR leaders with responsibility for EEO compliance, and any senior diversity leader, as well as outside counsel, who advise government contractors on their EEO compliance.
