Chris focuses his practice on assisting federal contractors and subcontractors to comply with legally-mandated employment and reporting obligations, as well as defending compliance reviews and enforcement proceedings brought by the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) and the United States Department of Labor (USDOL). Some of the issues that Chris provides assistance and advice on include:
- Jurisdictional analyses;
- Evaluations of adverse impact and statistical disparity issues;
- Responses to audit requests and findings; and
- Preventative measures for continued compliance.
In addition to focusing on affirmative action compliance, Chris has spent more than ten years defending lawsuits and administrative complaints of all sizes in state court, federal court, and various state and federal administrative agencies (such as the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, South Carolina Human Affairs Commission, and South Carolina Department of Labor, Licensing and Regulation).
