If you’re a federal contractor or subcontractor, now’s a good time to make sure your compensation practices are free from race, sex or age discrimination. Reason: The Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) has ramped up its investigation tactics to root out compensation discrimination.
Note: The OFCCP earlier this year also issued new guidance notifying federal contractors and subcontractors that using criminal background checks to screen applicants could violate federal Title VII discrimination laws. The lesson: Don’t have a blanket policy that says you won’t hire anyone with a criminal history, unless you can prove the ban is “job related” and “of business necessity.” The guidance is similar to enforcement guidance issued for all employers last year by the EEOC.
