Signs of Troubling Times Ahead for OFCCP's Approach to Manufacturing Comparators, Comparisons, and Discrimination
by Soul Cherradi - Apr, 2015
Discrimination cases are essentially “games” of making relevant, suitable, or valid comparisons between suitable, valid, or appropriate comparator(s). While anti-discrimination laws do not define discrimination in a comparative sense, comparators have had clear appeal as an evidentiary or heuristic aid for gauging whether discrimination has occurred. Comparators and comparisons make visible the occurrence of comparatively adv...
Recruiting, Hiring, and Retaining Individuals with Disabilities and Veterans — The Real Benefits to Your Company
by Cindy Karrow, SPHR - Apr, 2015
I am frequently asked for examples of the benefits derived by companies who hire Individuals with Disabilities (IWDs) and Veterans. Often this question comes from an Affirmative Action Planning (AAP) Manager who is looking for support from staffing representatives, hiring managers, and/or executives for their company’s outreach and recruitment activities. This support may take the form of budget dollars—at job fairs or time...

by Bill Osterndorf - Apr, 2015
This article is a companion to an article in the March 2015 edition of The OFCCP Digest. As we noted there, on October 1, 2014, the U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) released a new version of the scheduling letter and itemized listing that the agency sends to organizations at the start of an affirmative action compliance review. The previous version of the itemized listing aske...
Data This, Data That: Why Managing Data is Vital to a Successful AAP
by Lynn Clements - Apr, 2015
Just as in cooking, an Affirmative Action Program (AAP) is only as good as each of its ingredients. The most important ingredient in a successful AAP is good data. Federal contractors would be wise to spend more time understanding this ingredient before they begin mixing in others. Simply put, any analyses of a federal contractor’s personnel activities or progress in meeting placement goals is only as good as the initial...

President Obama and the OFCCP: Looking Ahead to 2015 and Beyond – Part III
by Ahmed Younies - Mar, 2015
In our last two posts, we examined key actions taken by the OFCCP in 2014 through the lens of President Obama’s ambitious agenda. While some OFCCP actions have reflected Mr. Obama’s priorities, others have actually resulted directly from Executive Orders. Between the OFCCP’s actions, Mr. Obama’s Executive Orders and statements of his priorities, what can we project for the federal contractor community in 2015 and beyond?...
The OFCCP's Proposed Regulations on Sex Discrimination and What They Mean for Contractors
by Carmen Couden, Esq. - Mar, 2015
On January 30, 2015, the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (“OFCCP”) published its proposed rule regarding updates to the current guidelines governing discrimination on the basis of sex.

Choosing an Affirmative Action Plan Structure
by Chris Lindholm - Mar, 2015
Introduction In a time of changing laws and a pervasive fear of OFCCP audits, it is always a good idea to make sure that people have a good understanding of the basics in compliance and how internal decisions affect Federal contractors. For decades contractors have told me that when it comes to affirmative action “A plan is a plan is a plan,” meaning they are basically cookie-cutter reports and all AAPs are basically the same...
Tips on Responding to New Scheduling Letter and Itemized Listing
by Bill Osterndorf - Mar, 2015
When the U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) begins an affirmative action compliance review, it sends the organization subject to the review a letter that requests various types of information. This letter is referred to as a “scheduling letter.” The scheduling letter includes an itemized listing of specific information that OFCCP expects will be included when information is subm...
