Affirmative action affects more than you think, and you may want to take note because affirmative action as we know it has dramatically changed. This webinar briefly outlines the regulatory environment and new requirements that went into effect over the last several months so that your plans are ready for increased scrutiny in the coming year. The OFCCP’s regulatory agenda demonstrates OFCCPs intent to aggressively enforce the laws under its jurisdiction and to strengthen the regulations that implement those laws. Moreover, all of the developments over the last four years reflect the OFCCP’s recently stated belief that affirmative action can no longer be measured by good faith efforts. Indeed, both proposed and implanted changes to compliance requirements reflect a push by the OFCCP for federal contractors to engineer results, and that trend continued right through 2014 affecting all plan designs for 2015.
