Affirmative Action

Our attorneys assist employers in implementing affirmative action programs required for compliance with laws imposed on federal, state and local government contractors and subcontractors. We can evaluate whether, or to what extent, you are covered by Executive Order 11246 and other contracting laws. We prepare affirmative action plans or assist you in evaluating affirmative action plans prepared by third-party vendors. Our attorneys work with your executive management teams and recruiters to assist you in developing effective and useful hiring and employment practices that meet the affirmative action compliance requirements. Because our attorneys also practice in traditional labor and employment law, we understand how to best help you integrate your affirmative action compliance requirements into your workplace. We provide training and interactive webinars to achieve buy-in for your company’s programs for those who are working with the requirements on a daily basis.

Our attorneys have developed strong nationwide relationships with the key players in the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs, the U.S. Department of Labor agency that enforces affirmative action requirements. We represent employers during an OFCCP compliance review and any associated administrative proceedings, counsel you on diversity initiatives and outreach efforts, train managers and supervisors, and assist you with your recordkeeping and applicant-tracking requirements so that you can present your workforce in its best light and realize practical results from your compliance efforts.
