AGC Provides Training to Federal Construction Contractors on OFCCP Affirmative Action Requirements
On April 7, 2011, AGC completed a webinar that provided 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 take affirmative action and refrain from unlawful discrimination.
The two-day webinar helped many current and future federal construction contractors by providing information necessary to understand the specific requirements of OFCCP in a contractor-friendly manner.
The event was moderated by Marian Enriquez, corporate compliance and diversity representative for AGC member company, Sundt Construction, Inc. Gilberto Garcia, OFCCP’s branch chief of enforcement, presented on the first day of the webinar along with OFCCP’s branch chief of planning and program development, Margaret Kraak. Together, they educated participants about the laws regulated by OFCCP, the 16 affirmative action steps, and what to expect during a compliance evaluation.
On day two, David Fortney, a seasoned labor and employment lawyer with Fortney & Scott, LLC, and Naomi Hackenberg of WorkPlace HR, LLC, an HR consulting firm specializing in equal employment opportunity and affirmative action matters for federal contractors, delivered practical guidelines, compliance assistance tips, and safeguards for employers to consider when faced with an OFCCP compliance evaluation.
The webinar was pre-approved to offer four general recertification credits by the HR Certification Institute (HRCI), the internationally recognized leader in human resource certification.
