Mr. Fox and Ms. Chambers will present the following sessions:
Recent Significant OFCCP Developments
We will start with recent developments of note at OFCCP affecting compliance obligations and OFCCP audits. We will also discuss the EEOC proposed EEO-1 Report and what it will mean for all Title VII employers with at least 100 employees.
Who is an Employee?
In parallel with the Wage-Hour Division, OFCCP is putting pressure on employee misclassification issues, including Joint-Employment issues. We will discuss how to think about this issue and catalogue many kinds of workers which are counter-intuitively employees who contractors must include in AAPs and statistical disparity analyses.
Things the Blogs Have Wrong
Finally, the session will end on a fun topic to correct erroneous information published in recent blogs, advertisements, surveys, and webinars. There might even be a quiz to see how many errors the attendees can uncover!
