2019 Fall Compliance Conference

Register today for The Institute’s 2019 Fall Compliance Conference
November 13-14, 2019

A lot is happening!  Audits are underway, changes to scheduling letters have been proposed and OFCCP continues to issue new directives and guidance. So, what can contractors expect in 2020? With an election year looming and the possibility of still more change, contractors need to expect the unexpected. In addition, the EEOC now has a quorum and can be expected to act on a number of important issues affecting employers.

Meanwhile, many states are jumping ahead of federal government to act with new laws on pay equity, sexual harassment, paid sick leave, paid family leave and more.

To be prepared for what is likely to be a very active 2020, join The Institute at our annual Fall Conference.

  • Update on OFCCP opinion letters, updated agency guidance, leadership and next steps for the agency
  • The latest in the area of Pay Equity both federal and state
  • The latest on OFCCP audits – establishment, FAAP, construction, compliance, focused review and OFCCP proposed changes to the scheduling letters for each
  • Update on annual OFCCP enforcement statistics/trends
