Workshop 1

Statistical and Practical Fit – Identifying the Appropriate Approach to Compliance
David Garber and Bob LaJeunesse, OFCCP; Jeff Lupardo, DOL; Consuela Pinto, Ford Harrison; Moderator: Paul McGovern, Praxis Consulting

Recognizing that there is no one size fits all approach, the multi-disciplinary expert panel will discuss how legal requirements and factors such as the contractors’ resources, pay system, and reasons for performing pay analysis help define what type of review is appropriate.  The panel will address:
• What can contractors expect from OFCCP’s analysis of your compensation system?
• What Title VII principles apply to compensation analyses?
• How can OFCCP and Contractors work within statistical and legal frameworks?
