Affirmative Action Training May Be Your Best Friend

Many hospitals and healthcare facilities are federal contractors. Some specific services in affirmative action planning law firms can include:

  • Identifying pertinent labor market areas and analyzing census-related statistical data

  • Providing sample plan texts, notices, letters and policy statements

  • Preparing utilization and availability analyses

  • Conducting impact ratio and compensation analyses

To help covered employers understand their affirmative action obligations and the procedure for plan development, we train management so they can understand the company’s obligations and their role in affirmative action. We defend clients against the imposition of citations and allegations of discrimination in connection with audits by the OFCCP and in related litigation brought on the OFCCP’s behalf by the Solicitor’s office of the U.S. Department of Labor.

Lawyers also prepare AAPs for, and defend against, audits by state and local affirmative action agencies. To identify and resolve potential adverse impacts and compensation disparity discrimination liability, lawyers perform highly-specialized vulnerability audits. For federal contractors and non-federal contractors alike, law firms also advise on implementing lawful diversity initiatives and voluntary AAPs, set-aside, and vendor and franchisee preference programs; counsel on affirmative action coverage issues; and conduct preventive analyses during downsizing.
