OFCCP Enforcement Update – There Are New Things Happening – Plus Everything You Wanted to Know About Pay Equity But Were Afraid to Ask (Be a Little Afraid, But Ask Anyway)
OFCCP has changed it’s focus, especially in the area of pay discrimination investigations. After years of trying to figure out how to investigate pay, OFCCP is now bringing back multi-million dollar settlements. And OFCCP’s new and effective enforcement approach is just one piece of the quickly growing Pay Equity puzzle. Private plaintiffs and state and local enforcement agencies are getting more aggressive and extracting big settlements from unsuspecting employers. Join us to learn about these developments and what you can do to protect your company.

For more than 20 years, Mickey has represented management in all areas of employment law, specializing in pay equity, OFCCP compliance and audit defense, affirmative action and EEO, and diversity and inclusion.
Mickey annually has overseen the preparation of thousands of affirmative action plans for government contractors in all industries and across the country. He has directed the defense of hundreds of OFCCP audits, including many corporate management reviews.

Through his role with the Institute, he meets with OFCCP, EEOC and other federal agency national leadership to present the employer community’s perspective on proposed laws and regulations and agency enforcement trends.
