After AAP Data Analyses: Remember Other Compliance Obligations
Joshua Roffman, Alissa A. Horvitz (Roffman Horvitz)
A compliant AAP has data analyses and words. The words often are a template that the employer is expected to customize based on the results of the data, but a lot of this boilerplate gets repeated each year without sufficient attention. The presentation objectives include:
• giving attention to the non-data-analysis compliance requirements in OFCCP’s regulations
• helping employers to develop or maintain evidence to prove compliance
• avoiding technical violations in compliance reviews
Wednesday - REGULAR CONFERENCE Wednesday, July 27
Conciliation Agreements-Understanding the Costs of Technical Violations
Alex Gonzalez (Outsolve), Alissa A. Horvitz (Roffman Horvitz)
OFCCP’s financial settlements are big headlines but technical violations also have long-range costs that include changes to policy and procedures and supplemental legal advice and counsel, plus submission of periodic progress reports that span six months to five years. This presentation will evaluate non-financial conciliation agreements from FY20 and FY21, summarize the most frequent violations, examine the ongoing compliance obligations, and provide recommendations on how government contractors can come into compliance prior to an audit.
