On February 1, 2018, the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) of the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) sent out 1,000 corporate scheduling announcement letters (CSALs).
These letters notify a contractor that it will be audited for compliance with numerous employment requirements in its government contract.
If your organization has received one of these letters, it’s extremely important that you begin to prepare for your audit. The best approach is an immediate self-audit. You’ll look much better to the OFCCP if you already know you have a problem and are taking steps to solve it. And the current focus of the OFCCP is to emphasize self-audits and voluntary compliance assisted by the OFCCP.
On March 19, 2018, OFCCP will begin sending out scheduling letters for audits. Government contractors are required to submit their affirmative action plans (AAPs) within 30 days of receiving the scheduling letter.
If you need assistance with your self-audit, preparing your AAP, or help with a desk audit or an onsite audit, the Lanier Ford’s employment lawyers are available to help.
