The National Industry Liaison Group ("NILG") is holding its annual conference in Milwaukee, Wisconsin this week. The NILG is an employer organization focused on improving interactions with OFCCP and educating its members on OFCCP compliance and diversity issues. Its annual conference brings together hundreds of HR and in-house legal professionals from government contractors, as well as officials from OFCCP and the EEOC. OFCCP Director Craig Leen is attending the conference and is scheduled to address the conference twice.
Proskauer, as always, is in attendance at this year's conference. On July 30, Proskauer partner Guy Brenner spoke on a panel with S&P Global's Senior Manager of EEO Compliance, Cherise Robinson, and Resolution Economics Partner Rick Holt. The panel discussed what contractors can do when they are notified via the CSAL process that they have been selected for a compliance evaluation. The panelists provided tips and insights from the in-house diversity professional, outside counsel, and labor economist perspectives to the conference participants. On July 31, Guy Brenner and Rick Holt will be presenting on a panel entitled "Stark Implications of the OFCCP's 2018 Compensation Directive – A Case Study," in which they will discuss the practical impact of the compensation directive and what contractors need to know to minimize the risk of an OFCCP compensation audit.
OFCCP news often breaks at the NILG conference, so if anything newsworthy happens we will be sure to share it with our readers. Stay tuned. (And if you are at the conference, look out for Guy and say hello!)
