2018 was an eventful year for the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP), the Labor Department’s federal contractor watchdog. Under the leadership of Acting Director Craig Leen, OFCCP issued a flurry of new directives and announced a second round of compliance reviews, two new proposed regulations, and a series of settlements. What can employers expect from the OFCCP in 2019?

Join FortneyScott attorneys Elizabeth B. Bradley, Consuela A. Pinto, and Sean D. Lee on December 12 at 12:00 p.m. (EST) for the final Lunch & Learn of 2018 as they recap OFCCP’s year and look ahead to 2019.

The votes are in! After a fiercely contested midterm election, Democrats have gained control of the U.S. House of Representatives, and Republicans have retained the Senate. What will this mean for employers and government contractors?

Join experienced Washington, DC-based attorneys David Fortney, Susan Warshaw Ebner, and Nita Beecher on Tuesday, November 13th at 12:00 pm  for a special post-election webinar as they weigh in on how the midterm results affect the legal landscape for labor and employment and government contracting, including:

  • How federal agencies will be affected by the election results, including whether there will be more Congressional oversight of federal agencies’ rulemaking and enforcement activities;
  • What is the impact of the election results on current Federal programs and contracts;
  • Who likely will be the leaders for the key Congressional committees, and what will be their agendas;
  • What is the impact of the elections on the confirmation proceedings for many long-pending key agency nominations; and
  • Whether any key legislation is likely under the new 116th Congress or the final lame duck session of the 115th Congress?

ABA CLE Webinar: Harassment & Bullying Investigations: What to Know When Conducting Effective Investigations

Event Start Date:
September 25, 2018 - 12:00 am
Event End Date:
September 25, 2018 - 12:00 am

Discrimination based on a protected category such as race or sexual harassment may create a hostile work environment. An employee may also experience a hostile work environment after attempting or threatening to report illegal conduct, such as age discrimination. Organizations are liable for the actions of employees that create hostile work environments through their actions, or rather inaction. The best way to protect your organization from being sued for a hostile work environment is to work swiftly and efficiently to investigate the claims. Numerous issues may arise in the course of an investigation of a workplace complaint, particularly a complaint about acts that might violate Title VII, ADA, ADEA, or other equal employment opportunity laws.
Join the expert panel, including FortneyScott Shareholder, Leslie Silverman as they discuss:

• Importance of conducting a prompt investigation
• Goals of complainant’s interview
• Necessity of revealing details to the respondent
• Prevention and intervention strategies
