Our attorneys plan and defend clients against issues raised by the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP). Annually, our team prepares affirmative action plans for clients across several industries, including health care, banking, construction, manufacturing and transportation. We defend against OFCCP audits and state affirmative action agency audits. Additionally, our team provides legal representation to employers when the OFCCP asserts discrimination, seeking back pay and other remedies.
Our team performs the following affirmative action compliance services for government contractors and subcontractors:
- Prepare compliant narrative sections of affirmative action plans for minorities and women, individuals with disabilities, and veterans;
- Review and analyze contractor’s workforce and prepare utilization analyses;
- Review and analyze contractor’s personnel activity and conduct adverse impact analyses; and
- Train human resources, recruiting and management personnel, assisting them in complying with their obligations, including mandated outreach efforts.
We also defend contractors against audits conducted by the OFCCP, as well as many state agencies which require varying affirmative action obligations.
