Federal Contractors Quarterly Briefing: The Fate of Blacklisting, EEO-1 Reports, Overtime Rules and More Under the ‘New’ DOL and EEOC - On-Demand

Webinar now available On-Demand.

WEBINAR SNAPSHOT: Learn the practical impact evolving federal contractor compliance requirements will have on your organization.

Since our last Federal Contractors Quarterly Briefing webinar, President Trump has presented his FY2018 budget—which proposes to merge OFCCP with EEOC and cut the DOL budget by 20%.

Although Alexander Acosta has been in place since April, no DOL sub-agency heads have been nominated. Patrick Pizzella has been nominated but not confirmed as Deputy Labor Secretary. Nevertheless, Secretary Acosta has hit the ground running by proposing to revise the Obama-era overtime regulations and eliminating Administrator Interpretations on joint employment and independent contractors.

Meanwhile, OFCCP has continued to pursue federal contractors like it’s 2016! With the recent Google decision allowing the agency nearly unlimited access to compensation data, audits continue to be long and drawn out. However, at the recent National ILG conference, Interim Director Tom Dowd reached out to contractors and asked for their input.

Use this third quarterly briefing of 2017 created exclusively for federal contractors.Attorneys and D.C. insiders David Fortney and Nita Beecher will provide the latest compliance update and offer practical solutions for protecting your organization from costly legal liabilities.

You’ll learn:

  • Last minute information from the EEOC on the new reporting requirements
  • The likelihood of an OFCCP-EEOC merger in FY2019
  • Whether the Trump Administration will seek to increase the salary level for exempt employees—and, if so, by how much
  • Whether the EEO-1 Report Component 2 be implemented in March 2018 and what federal contractors should do now to prepare
  • OFCCP’s recent outreach to contractors and impact of Google decision
  • Recent intra-agency memo on paid sick leave and impact on Service Contract Act
  • Which other federal contractor-related regulations are up in the air right now
  • And much more!
