Preparing for "Deep Dive" OFCCP Audits and a Potential Increase in Enforcement Litigation (Session 3)
With the potential for more OFCCP litigation and enforcement actions on the horizon for federal contractors and subcontractors, the next program in our OFCCP & Diversity Series provides an in-depth look at OFCCP audit reviews and the enforcement litigation landscape. During the session, K&L Gates partner and former OFCCP Director Craig Leen highlights practical guidance for companies on how to effectively engage with the agency in order to decrease the chances of a lengthy "deep dive" audit. Craig also discusses how to best navigate the agency's recently issues regulations and guidance on predetermination notices, transparency, and early resolutions. Finally, Craig provides insights on how the agency will likely approach future litigation and enforcement actions, and what contractors should focus on to most persuasively present their case through both mediation and adjudication.
