Today DirectEmployers Association, a trusted employer-driven association of talent acquisition and inclusion leaders, has the unique opportunity to work with key personnel in the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) to conduct a listening session at the U.S. Department of Labor, exclusively for members of the Association. Moderated by employment law expert John C. Fox, Fox, Wang & Morgan, P.C., this session will feature the OFCCP’s Patricia Shiu, Director; Debra Carr, Director, Division of Policy, Planning and Program Development; and Naomi Levin, Branch Chief for Policy Development and Procedures, Division of Policy, Planning and Program Development. The participants will work toward dispelling any misinformation that surrounds the OFCCP’s revisions to the Vietnam Era Veterans’ Readjustment Assistance Act of 1974 (VEVRAA) and Section 503 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, giving federal contractors a chance to adjust their individual compliance strategies before the implementation date of March 24, 2014.
“A large portion of our membership represents the federal contractor community,” commented Bill Warren, Executive Director, DirectEmployers Association. “With all of the information and interpretation that surrounds the OFCCP’s revisions to VEVRAA and Section 503, this opportunity gives our members the ability to glean accurate information directly from the source, providing them with a clear direction on how to implement the new requirements into their strategies.”
Prior to this exclusive listening session, members of the Association were asked to submit questions regarding the new regulations to generate an interactive discussion among the OFCCP representatives and the company participants to create greater understanding among the federal contractor community. Select members from companies like Armstrong, BAE Systems, Bechtel, Citizens Bank, DuPont, Hilton, Marriott, KPMG, Raytheon and Sodexo were also invited to the Department of Labor to experience this event in-person, while the membership as a whole was invited to listen in virtually.
Founded in 2001, DirectEmployers has worked for over ten years to help federal contractors comply with OFCCP job listing requirements by providing the technology necessary to deliver jobs to the appropriate employment service delivery system (ESDS).
