To help members of the Association tackle OFCCP compliance challenges, DirectEmployers partners with employment law expert John C. Fox, Esq., of Fox, Wang & Morgan P.C., to provide tactical and strategic legal guidance.
INDIANAPOLIS, November 20, 2013 /Business Wire/ — As the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) strengthens its regulations, DirectEmployers Association–the nation’s leading provider of OFCCP compliance solutions for veteran and disability outreach–aligns itself with compliance and employment law expert, John C. Fox, Esq., of Fox, Wang & Morgan P.C. This alliance will provide interpretation and clarify the many misunderstandings related to the new OFCCP regulations for VEVRAA and Section 503.
With over 35 years of experience as one of the nation’s premier employment law experts, Fox brings innate knowledge of wage-hour and employment discrimination class actions, discrimination law, OFCCP law and procedure, employment contract disputes and wrongful termination to the Association. After obtaining his Juris Doctor from the prestigious George Washington University Law School in Washington, D.C., he began his legal career where he has since spent more than 300 days in trial, trying cases in both state and federal courts throughout the United States. He is also known for being active in the human resources industry, often giving lectures at conferences and industry-specific events, as well as being a published author on a variety of employment law subjects.
“DirectEmployers is known for our unparalleled compliance solution, as well as our partnerships. However, the recent changes to VEVRAA and Section 503 prompted us to enrich our service offering even further. The legal advisement of John C. Fox, coupled with our National Labor Exchange compliance service and our partnership with the National Association of State Workforce Agencies, will enhance our already robust service offering and further solidify our position as a top-tier OFCCP compliance solution,” stated Bill Warren, Executive Director, DirectEmployers Association.
As the Association’s acting OFCCP compliance consultant, Fox will participate in a variety of activities that will benefit the membership as a whole, including:
- Contribute and provide legal input to the DirectEmployers Recruitment Regulatory Compliance Committee (RRCC)–a committee comprised of HR professionals that work to educate and inform members about compliance and related laws
- Author OFCCP compliance-focused blog posts to help members better interpret regulatory requirements
- Offer a series of compliance-focused webinars on a range of topics
- Facilitate a virtual and in-person listening session on Thursday, January 16, 2014 from 10:00-11:30 a.m. EST, featuring Patricia Shiu, Director of the OFCCP, and Debra Carr, Director–Division of Policy, Planning and Program Development, OFCCP
