Federal contractors realize the importance of complying with the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) and equal employment regulations. However, how best to comply is often less clear. Attorneys and HR professionals who represent federal contractors turn to our experts at Exela HR Solutions for help with OFCCP compliance. We align with contractors in various industries, including:
- Aviation Consulting
- Banking and Finance
- Employment Agencies
- Higher Education
- Hospitals & Healthcare
- Medical Research
- Not-for-Profit Organizations
Affirmative Action Plans
Our skilled 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.
We 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 plans. Issues our experts analyze for AAP development include:
- Availability and placement goals
- Applicant tracking
- Adverse impact
- Compensation and pay equity
As part of the annual AAP development process, our affirmative action professionals also consult with clients to create 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.
OFCCP Compliance Reviews
In the event that a federal contractor receives the notification of an OFCCP compliance review, our affirmative action professionals can deliver the needed analysis and support. We work with contractors and their counsel to understand agency requests, review data and documents, and prepare appropriate submissions to the agency. We also provide compensation analyses, and prepare exposure estimates for conciliations agreements or settlements, and, as required, provide expert testimony regarding our analyses before administrative law judges.
