Executive Order 11246 requires many federal contractors and subcontractors to engage in affirmative action to employ and advance women, minorities, individuals with disabilities, and covered veterans. The Office of Federal Contract Compliance (OFCCP), the agency of the Department of Labor (DOL) tasked with enforcing this and related laws and regulations, is taking an aggressive approach towards enforcement. Our experienced lawyers can help covered contractors and subcontractors in the following ways:
• Facilitate compliance with federal affirmative action regulations and requirements, including compliance with internet applicant regulations and recordkeeping obligations, outreach and recruitment obligations, and comparable compensation obligations
• Develop written affirmative action plans, by performing sophisticated statistical analysis, drafting plan narratives, producing required reports, and conducting training
• Guide covered contractors and subcontractors through OFCCP audits, by preparing desk audit submissions, responding to OFCCP information requests, assisting with OFCCP onsite audits, responding to OFCCP Notices of Violation, engaging in conciliation efforts with the OFCCP, and defending OFCCP enforcement actions.
