On January 16, 2019, Proskauer partner Guy Brenner and Resolution Economics Director Rick Holt delivered a webinar entitled: OFCCP – The Year That Was and the Year Ahead. The jam-packed presentation provided legal, practical, and econometric insights into the numerous actions taken by the Department of Labor’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (“OFCCP”) in 2018, and looked ahead at what contractors can expect from the agency in 2019.

Over the course of the 70-minute presentation, Guy and Rick shared their perspectives regarding:

  • OFCCP enforcement trends
  • The agency’s new compensation directive, identifying both the positive aspects and short-comings in the policy
  • The agency’s focus on improved efficiency and its efforts toward that end, including:
      • The AAP Verification Initiative Directive
      • Rescinding the Active Case Enforcement Directive
      • Creation of new Early Resolution Procedures
      • Encouragement of contractors’ use of functional affirmative action programs
      • Announcement of focused compliance evaluations
  • OFCCP’s transparency and consistency initiatives, including:
      • Proactively posting information regarding compliance evaluation scheduling and conciliation agreements
