Who We Are
The Triangle Industry Liaison Group (TILG) was formed in 1991 in a positive effort to bring government contractors located in Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill, and the surrounding areas together with our local representatives from the OFCCP to openly discuss our compliance obligations, educate ourselves to meet regulatory expectations, and share best practices among the membership.
What We Offer
- Company membership – one small annual fee covers all members of your organization for the entire year.
- Approved HRCI credits for attending each meeting.
- Nationally known speakers, providing education on various AA, EO, and diversity topics.
- An opportunity to network with federal contractors and subcontractors across a wide range of industries.
- Volunteer opportunities to assist with program planning, membership support, meeting logistics, and website updates.
The Triangle Industry Liaison Group (TILG) is an important resource for Equal Opportunity and Affirmative Action Professionals, Recruiters, and HR Generalists who find EO/AA compliance knowledge critical to their business. Our goals are to provide assistance in professional development for every member; provide leadership in establishing and supporting standards of excellence in every phase of EO/AA compliance; assist members in valuing and managing a diverse work force; and to serve as a networking point for the exchange of best practices.
2016 was another busy regulatory year for federal contractors with the announcement of the new Pay Equity Report (due March, 2018), updates to Sex Discrimination regulations, finalization of the Paid Sick Leave regulation (EO 13706) as well as the Fair Pay & Safe Workplaces regulation (EO 13673), with portions of the latter given a reprieve one day before its implementation date. All of this in addition to an active audit year where many federal contractors experienced requests for extensive follow-up information. Additionally, the Government Accountability Office (GAO) released a report suggesting the OFCCP should change how they select federal contractors for audits with many contractors complaining about the number and frequency of their audits under a supposedly random selection process. However, this report also suggested contractors should submit their AAPs annually!
As we embark on a Republican led administration and the appointment of a pro-business head of the DOL, federal contractors may be given a reprieve on what has been a regulatory whirlwind over the last 8 years. Join us for our quarterly membership meetings in 2017 to learn what to expect in this new frontier!
Please feel free to contact me or other members of the board to discuss membership, suggestions for programming or interest in joining our board.
To Your Compliance!
