The OFCCP recently announced that it will hold two town hall meetings in the coming weeks to provide compliance assistance to federal government contractors in the tech industry. The town halls are free and open to the public, and are intended to ensure that contractors have the tools and resources needed to comply with their equal employment opportunity and affirmative action obligations. These events also provide the contractor community with an opportunity to be heard and express valuable opinions on how OFCCP can help contractors achieve compliance.
The meetings will be held in San Jose, California on February 26, 2019 and Seattle, Washington on February 28, 2019. Tickets are available on a first come, first serve basis, and are limited to two tickets per organization. Registration is available on the OFCCP’s website. Based on attendance at recent town hall meetings held by OFCCP, it is advisable to register soon.
Federal contractors in the tech industry should consider whether it would be valuable to attend these meetings. The meetings may be of particular interest to human resource managers, diversity and equal employment opportunity specialists, chief compliance officers, and other personnel in the technology industry who are directly involved with ensuring compliance with OFCCP’s requirements.
