WEBINAR: Nine Affirmative Action Missteps to Avoid 3/29

WebinarAffirmative Action 

Join us for a complimentary webinar on March 29 in which we discuss nine key areas in which covered federal contractors put themselves at risk by failing to take specific actions.

NEW REGULATIONS BRING NEW RISK
Join us for a complimentary webinar on March 29 in which we discuss nine key areas in which covered federal contractors put themselves at risk by failing to take specific actions. If you, your customers, or your vendors have contracts with the federal government, then you may have affirmative action obligations. Compliance missteps in this arena are all too easy, even for experienced HR professionals. In the last two years, we’ve witnessed significant changes in affirmative action rules and enforcement, including new regulations on veterans and people with disabilities; Executive Orders on gender identity, sexual orientation, pay transparency, minimum wage, and paid sick leave; and expanded audit procedures by the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP). We’ll help you zero in on where to focus your energies in compliance.

Complimentary Webinar - March 29 at 10 a.m. Pacific/1 p.m. Eastern
