Earlier this year, President Obama announced his Administration’s “Year of Action,” in which he would use the Executive Branch to act where Congress had not. Since that announcement, federal contractors have found themselves in the midst of that action. Relying upon the President’s authority in the area of procurement, the Administration has taken action on a wide variety of issues, including minimum wage, pay equity, LGBT discrimination, and compensation disclosure. Perhaps most significantly, the President has issued an Executive Order that would require contracting agencies to consider a contractor’s compliance with a large number of labor law obligations in deciding whether to award a contract.
As the Administration moves forward with regulatory and other Executive Branch initiatives, federal contractor employers have had many questions about their obligations. During our interactive webinar, Seyfarth attorneys will provide answers to those questions, such as:
- Will these Executive Order/regulatory action/administrative change apply to my company?
- If so, when will they apply?
- What will my company’s obligations be under these Executive Order/regulatory action/administrative changes?
- What should I be doing now to ensure compliance?
Join former head of the OFCCP Larry Lorber, former head of the Wage & Hour Division Alex Passantino, and Seyfarth’s OFCCP Compliance, Affirmative Action & Diversity Team member, Meredith Bailey as they help guide you through the new executive branch minefield.
