Partner Brian D. Barger and Counsel Robert F. Holland provided a complete overview of new Sex Discrimination Guidelines published by the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) in this webinar.
The rule substantially revises the OFCCP’s prior 1970s-era Sex Discrimination Guidelines for federal contractors and subcontractors covered by Executive Order 11246, and is effective August, 15, 2016.
A preview was provided of coming litigation attractions that are relevant for all employers (regardless of whether an employer is a federal contractor).
Key issues and challenges were discussed regarding OFCCP’s position on such topics as:
- Pregnancy bias
- Workplace accommodations for pregnant workers
- Caregiver protections
- Pay practices
- Work assignments
- Sex stereotypes and sexual orientation and gender identity discrimination
- This webinar covered:
- Key provisions of the new Sex Discrimination Guidelines and the practical impact on employers – including federal contractors and non-contractors
- Key differences between the 1970 Sex Discrimination Guidelines and the changes made in the new regulations
- Provisions in the new Sex Discrimination Guidelines that go beyond current case law and recent OFCCP/EEOC interpretations
- Takeaways for use in analyzing and revising your organization’s current hiring, employment, compensation, and benefit practices and policies to align with new compliance expectations
