OFCCP’s New Audit List and Scheduling Letter Increase the Burdens on Federal Contractors

The Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) issued its latest Corporate Scheduling Announcement List (CSAL) on September 8, 2023, quickly following the publication of the agency’s updated supply and service contractor Scheduling Letter and Itemized Listing. Federal contractors that are scheduled for compliance reviews after August 24 must comply with the agency’s enhanced and expedited information production obligations, perhaps very soon. In this webinar, the speakers will unpack the latest CSAL list, provide an overview of the most challenging aspects of the revised Scheduling Letter and Itemized Listing, and identify strategic considerations and response options for contractors selected for compliance reviews.

Mock Employment Tribunal

Our mock Employment Tribunal will give attendees a flavour of what it would be like in real life. In a role-play scenario, a team of experienced employment barristers (one of whom is a practicing Employment Tribunal judge), together with Ogletree Deakins’ London team, will recreate the workings of a Tribunal in a safe and non-critical environment where attendees can raise questions as the event unfolds. You will have an opportunity to understand the procedure of giving evidence, cross-examination, and re-examination, to discuss your perceptions of the evidence, and to predict the outcome of the case.

California’s New Workplace Violence Law and Cal/OSHA’s Expected Enforcement

California’s Senate Bill (SB) No. 553, if enacted, would require virtually every employer in California to adopt a comprehensive workplace violence prevention plan, starting on July 1, 2024. This webinar will review SB 553 and the California Division of Occupational Safety and Health’s (Cal/OSHA) proposed workplace violence prevention regulation. The webinar will address the proposed bill’s requirements to implement a written workplace violence prevention plan, to record every workplace violence incident in a violent incident log, to provide effective training to employees, and to maintain training records for at least one year.

Betsy’s Briefings—Coffee, Tea, and California Employment Law

Getting employees back to work after an injury, illness, or leave of absence can be challenging in California if the employee has work restrictions and/or a disability. Employers have a statutory obligation to engage in the interactive process and to reasonably accommodate an employee’s disability, and California has its own take on how the interactive process should be handled and what accommodations may be reasonable. In this webinar, the speakers will assist attendees in understanding their obligations under the California Fair Employment and Housing Act, managing and documenting reasonable accommodations and the interactive process, and identifying the medical information they can obtain during the interactive process.
