Workshop 4

New Frontiers in State Affirmative Action Reporting
Bill Osterndorf, DCI Consulting Group, Inc.

Affirmative action reporting requirements for state governments are a serious issue for employers.  While most of the focus regarding states is on pay reporting, affirmative action reporting is often just as burdensome.  In this session, we will learn:

  • Why submitting federal affirmative action plans is the wrong answer for complying with state requirements
  • What sanctions states can use for non-compliance, including monetary penalties
  • How to interact with state governments that make burdensome requests
