Affirmative Action & Federal Contracting
Our attorneys have over 35 years of experience representing and defending government contractor and subcontractor client in hundreds of audits of their employment practices by the U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs. We assist our clients in the submission of data to the OFCCP, represent them in the course of desk and on-site audits, and have succeeded in defeating or greatly reducing claims of back pay in the context of hiring, termination, promotion and compensation practices. Our team of attorneys and paralegals have even more extensive experience in preparing thousands of affirmative action plans for our contractor clients which are fully legally-compliant and true to the spirit of equal employment opportunity, but minimize unnecessary risks and burdens to our clients stemming from the compilation and reporting of superfluous data. We also advise clients regarding their ongoing obligations in complying with ever-changing federal regulations in the affirmative action and nondiscrimination arena for federal contractors and subcontractors.
