As the March 24th deadline to become compliant with the new OFCCP regulations approaches, the federal contractor community is actively seeking advice and direction on how to do so. To help our Members easily transition into the new changes surrounding VEVRAA and Section 503 with a clear comprehension of what is expected, we are forming new compliance partnerships and resources. A few weeks ago we announced our alliance with employment law attorney, John C. Fox, who over the next year will be authoring eight (semi-quarterly) compliance-focused columns within his blog “The OFCCP Fox Report”, as well as hosting four Member-exclusive webinars.

We are also excited to announce that on Tuesday, January 16, 2014 from 10:00 – 11:30 am EST we will be holding a listening session hosted by not only Mr. Fox, but also the Director of the OFCCP, Patricia Shiu, and the Director of the Division of Policy, Planning and Program Development at the OFCCP, Debra Carr. During this hour and a half session, the experts will be answering questions previously submitted by our Members, as well as non-members, with time at the end for attendees to ask additional questions.

While this session is beneficial to employers who are looking to gain a better understanding of the new laws, it is also helpful for the OFCCP, providing an idea of what information needs to be clarified and to help diffuse any confusion that surrounds the new requirements. Questions not answered during the session will be used for future training sessions and webinars provided by the OFCCP.

The listening session seeks to provide answers to pertinent questions and clear up any misunderstandings that exist within the current regulatory environment, and we are thrilled to offer this exclusive opportunity for our Members. While only Members can participate in the listening session, non-members are also encouraged to submit questions, with the answers to be provided after the session has ended. We will be submitting the first round of questions to the OFCCP one month prior to the listening session, and we invite anyone to submit questions they would like to have answered.
