A Year of Change: What Federal Contractors Can Expect from OFCCP in 2021 

Over the last year, we have survived a pandemic, a presidential election and an economic downturn—all of which were underscored by ongoing social upheaval and calls for systemic change. In this context, OFCCP has adapted its regulatory processes to address the shifting landscape. During this session, Berkshire President Beth Ronnenburg will identify OFCCP’s current enforcement priorities, share lessons learned from recent OFCCP compliance reviews, and offer insight into real-world EEO and affirmative action compliance and risk management strategies. 

If you’re attending SHRM this year, this is a session you won’t want to miss!
