     Is your company a Federal Contractor, but doesn’t know it?

     Are you aware of the OFCCP’s 3 new major rule proposals which are about to be approved?

     Do you know how EEO and AAP are both different and similar?

    Many organizations are not aware that they are legally considered Federal Contractors even though they do not have a contract directly with the federal government.  Business relationships with customers or vendors or other governmental agencies who do contract with the federal government may result in your company being required to comply with the programs of the Office of Federal Contract Compliance (OFCCP).  Find out if you are in this situation and what to do about it.

    Recently the OFCCP, the agency responsible for enforcing Equal Opportunity and Affirmative Action Programs for government contractors has issued three major rule proposals which are anticipated to become effective in the next six to nine months.  These proposed rules will have major implications for federal contractors and sub contractors in the way they recruit and hire veterans, disabled veterans and disabled individuals. These changes may also impact companies without federal contracts.

    Also, the OFCCP as well as the EEOC are looking at compensation practices and their effect on protected individuals. Both civil rights agencies are studying how compensation is set and how that results in potential illegal discrimination.

    Come and hear Jeff Kaprow who is an independent consultant with over 25 years experience working for both the OFCCP and in private industry answer these questions and more.  HRCI credits pending.

    Mr. Kaprow, who heads up an EEO/Diversity consulting practice has well over 30 years of professional experience.  Having a mix of consulting, corporate and government experience in the field, makes Mr. Kaprow a highly unusual and valuable Equal Employment Opportunity/Affirmative Action and diversity management consultant.

     He started his professional career as a Compliance Officer for the U.S. Department of Defense working in the OFCCP program.  There he conducted compliance reviews and class action complaint investigations of Fortune 100 government contractors under OFCCP programs and veteran and disability laws.  He was lead investigator and team leader for reviews of facilities ranging in size from 1,000 to 10,000 employees that were identified by the agency as having significant problems.  Because of this background, Mr. Kaprow knows firsthand what federal investigators expect of an Affirmative Action Program.

     After serving ten years with the U.S. Department of Labor’s Contract Compliance Program, Mr. Kaprow worked for eleven years for Sunoco, the oil Company, where he was a corporate staff consultant and EEO/AA Manager of the Refining and Marketing Division.  There he was responsible for EEO charges filed with federal, state or local agencies and Department of Labor compliance reviews.  He created, designed and implemented proactive affirmative action programs to help reposition the company within the industry.  In addition, he defended the company in 15 OFCCP compliance reviews with no significant commitments required by the agency and successfully defended over 50 charges with EEOC, state and local civil rights agencies.

     For the past twenty years, Mr. Kaprow has been consulting on EEO/AA and diversity management, serving a variety of clients in banking, manufacturing and service industries.  He provides an array of products for clients, including: AAP’s and related policy development; discrimination charge and complaint position papers; representation with enforcement agencies; management training programs on EEO and employment law, sexual harassment prevention and control, diversity management; and more.
