OFCCP Chief of Enforcement to Present & Answer Questions During AGC Webinar April 6-7; 4.0 HRCI Credits Offered
AGC will host a two-part webinar, April 6-7, to provide compliance assistance training and best practices for federal and federally-assisted construction contractors governed by the requirements of the U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) – the federal agency responsible for ensuring that those who do business with the federal government do not discriminate and take affirmative action.
Registrants who successfully complete the webinar program may receive 4.0 recertification credits towards PHR, SPHR or GPHR recertification from the Human Resource Certification Institute (HRCI). As an authorized provider of continuing education credits, AGC is providing the opportunity to earn these credits, which can be important to maintaining a professional designation and accelerating career growth.
The webinar will address both daily compliance issues and preparation for an audit. On day one, Margaret Kraak, OFCCP’s branch chief of planning and program development, and Gilberto Garcia, OFCCP’s branch chief of enforcement, will educate participants about the laws regulated by OFCCP, the 16 affirmative action steps, what to expect during a compliance evaluation, and more. On day two, David Fortney, a seasoned labor and employment lawyer with Fortney & Scott, LLC, and Jill Smith, Executive Director for WorkPlace HR, LLC, an HR consulting firm specializing in equal employment opportunity and affirmative action matters for federal contractors, will deliver practical guidelines, compliance assistance tips, and safeguards for employers to consider when faced with an OFCCP compliance evaluation. Each day will provide an opportunity for questions.
As an added bonus, registrants will be able to co-order AGC’s Affirmative Action Manual for Construction, a necessary tool for all construction contractors required to comply with the laws administered by OFCCP, for a special discounted price with the webinar.
OFCCP has increased its enforcement efforts over the past two years to monitor compliance efforts and now, more than ever, it is important to comply with these laws or face costly fines, penalties or debarment.
