OFCCP Scheduling Letters, Anticipated Changes and More: The Latest Changes — and the Practical Impact on Federal Contractors - On-Demand

Webinar now available On-Demand.

WEBINAR SNAPSHOT: Learn how the latest OFCCP scheduling letter and other updates will impact federal contractor compliance in 2020.

Now that Acting Secretary of Labor Patrick Pizzella is at the helm, changes to the OFCCP are likely. That includes the possible reduction in the agency’s aggressive approach to federal contractors in audits and in litigation. These changes are likely to continue especially once Gene Scalia is confirmed as Secretary of Labor.

Meanwhile, the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) is reviewing comments on the proposed changes to OFCCP’s scheduling letters. While many of the onerous changes in the initial proposal have been removed, there are still issues especially with the focused review letters. As a result, now is the time to get up to speed on which of the OFCCP’s proposed changes to the scheduling letter are likely to take effect and which won’t be revised.

Consider, too, that the DOL has released a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) intended to clarify the civil rights protections afforded to religious organizations that contract with the federal government.

Use this on-demand webinar with attorneys Nita Beecher and Consuela Pinto of Fortney Scott who will provide an update on the OFCCP’s proposed rule, how to comply with OFCCP scheduling letter requirements, and anticipated changes under DOL Secretary Scalia—and the practical impact these developments will have on federal contractors’ compliance obligations for 2020.

You’ll learn:

  • Where the OFCCP’s proposed scheduling letters and itemized listings now stand
  • Best practices for responding to a scheduling letter, including when the clock on your response time starts ticking
  • How a corporate scheduling announcement list (CSAL) differs from a scheduling letter and why the CSAL can help in the event of an OFCCP audit
  • The latest on the DOL’s NPRM concerning religious organizations that contract with the federal government
  • ERPs, VERPs, and other settlement options
  • And more!
