The Kilpatrick Townsend Labor and Employment team has extensive experience in drafting and reviewing affirmative action plans and advising employers regarding compliance with the requirements of the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP). Continual changes to governing laws and regulations, as well as an evolving and increasingly diverse workforce, can make keeping up with annual affirmative action requirements a challenge. Approximately one quarter of the total civilian work force is employed by federal government contractors or subcontractors that have an affirmative action mandate, and failure of a covered employer to comply with those requirements, whether intentional or inadvertent, can result in serious consequences.
Kilpatrick Townsend attorneys provide the in-depth knowledge needed to assist clients throughout the compliance process and design comprehensive, preventative and cost-effective affirmative action plans.
We have prepared hundreds of effective Affirmative Action Plans, and we provide on-going advice for many Fortune 50 and Fortune 100 companies. We have successfully represented dozens of high profile companies in hundreds of compliance audits conducted by the OFCCP, with only two audits ever resulting in monetary payments. Kilpatrick Townsend is one of the leaders in the legal industry with regards to Affirmative Action Plans and OFCCP matters.
