Federal contractors realize the importance of complying with the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) affirmative action and equal employment regulations. However, how best to comply is often less clear. Attorneys, in house counsel and HR professionals who represent federal contractors have turned to ERS Group’s experts for help with OFCCP compliance efforts for over 30 years. We have worked with contractors in a variety of industries, including:
ERS Group’s affirmative action professionals consult with federal contractors on the current year’s AAPs, the organization’s employment structure, and the external labor market. They then work with contractors to review essential data collected by the organization, and develop an AAP that meets current OFCCP compliance requirements.
ERS Group’s experts provide organizations with in depth analyses using internal and external data to help clients better understand the effects of employment decisions such as hiring, promotion and compensation on their plan. Issues our experts analyze for AAP development include:
As part of the annual AAP development process, our affirmative action professionals also consult with clients on the creation of job groups, other filings, including EE0-1 reports, VETS 4212 reports, and new reporting required for Individuals with Disabilities (IWDs). Additionally, they work with contractors to satisfy reporting required by state governments.
In the event that a federal contractor receives notification of an OFCCP compliance review, ERS Group’s affirmative action professionals and labor economists provide the next level of analysis and support. ERS Group’s AAP professionals work with contractors and their counsel to understand agency requests, review data and documents, and prepare appropriate submissions to the agency. Our economists provide compensation analyses, as well as prepare exposure estimates for conciliations agreements or settlements, and, as required, provide expert testimony regarding our analyses before administrative law judges.
Held annually, ERS Group’s two-day seminar “Effective OFCCP Audit and AAP Preparation” provides attendees with the tools and information they need to develop meaningful and accurate AAPs that respond to the latest OFCCP guidelines and precisely reflect an organization’s employment practices and goals.
