OFCCP Update: Let’s Discuss the New OFCCP Director and New Developments in OFCCP Enforcement – Plus Everything You Wanted to Know About Pay Equity But Were Afraid to Ask (Be a Little Afraid, But Ask Anyway)

Guest speaker Mickey Silberman is Chair of the Affirmative Action & Pay Equity Practice Group at Fortney & Scott, LLC. He is a nationally acclaimed expert and speaker in the areas of affirmative action, OFCCP, EEO and Pay Equity.

Mickey will talk to us about OFCCP’s new National Director, Ondray Harris, and the Agency, which has changed its focus, especially in the area of pay discrimination investigations. After years of trying to figure out how to investigate pay, OFCCP is now bringing back multi-million dollar settlements. And OFCCP’s new and effective enforcement approach is just one piece of the quickly growing Pay Equity puzzle. Plaintiffs and state and local enforcement agencies are getting more aggressive and extracting big settlements from unsuspecting employers.

Join us to learn about these developments and what you can do to protect your organization.
