Navigating the regulations set in place by the Department of Labor’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) can be like trying to interpret a foreign language. DirectEmployers 2017 Annual Meeting & Conference (DEAM17) has a versatile program with a variety of compliance sessions to help you understand the ever-changing regulatory landscape and ultimately bridge the gap between your compliance and recruiting teams through cross-functional learning sessions. Whether you are in a compliance-focused role or a recruiting professional interested in learning more about the interconnected compliance functions of your organization, there is much to learn from our lineup of great employment law speakers. Take a look at some of these great sessions on the agenda:
Managing Evergreen Jobs to Limit Liability & Compliance Implications
Katie and John will discuss both the several “wrinkles” which exist to properly “list” jobs with the state One-Stop Centers and separately discuss how to document the legitimate reasons candidates expressing interest for work are not “Applicants” and documenting the legitimate reasons for the rejection of evergreen applicants. This session marries Katie’s HR and recruitment background processing evergreen reqs with her special expertise with the Taleo ATS. John adds practical suggestions driven by his experience blending OFCCP legal and compliance requirements with the very many different ways Government contractors deploy evergreen job reqs.
Presenters: John Fox, Katie Selvey
New President, New Administration: How this Affects Federal Contractors & How to Prepare for Compliance Reviews
With a newly elected president and appointed officials comes a new administration and priorities that will help carry out the president’s political agenda. Like other departments within the government, the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) hasn’t been immune to change and this session will discuss the trends seen under the new administration and how these trends are impacting federal contractors. The presenters will also discuss how different regions are implementing changes, what can be expected and how to best prepare for audits under the new administration.
