Strategies for Documenting Annual Affirmative Action Initiatives
Joshua Roffman and Alissa Horvitz, Roffman Horvitz, PLC
As OFCCP places increased emphasis on documentation, many employers are struggling to understand what that documentation looks like. For example, OFCCP expects employers to develop action-oriented programs based on the results of the data analyses in the women and minorities AAP; review personnel process, assess outreach effectiveness, and engage in external and internal dissemination pursuant to the veteran and disability regulations; and conduct an internal audit under all three sets of regulations. This session will address (1) what that follow-through looks like; (2) what records the employer should generate; and (3) which records might be best created at the advice of counsel to preserve attorney client privilege.
