OFCCP to Conduct More Desk Audits in 2019

By: Samuel T. Long and Connie N. Bertram

Polsinelli Shareholder Connie Bertram was recently quoted in a Society for Human Resource Management article regarding changes to the OFCCP’s audit practices as a result of three directives released in November 2018.  The article explains that federal contractors are more likely to face desk audits in 2019, but no longer have to worry about being randomly selected for a mandated onsite audit under the Obama administration’s active case enforcement procedures.  The article also provides guidance regarding the OFCCP’s new early dispute resolution procedures (ERP), which allow contractors to accelerate the audit process and may benefit contractors in some circumstances. The article is available here.
