Industry Liaison Group: Its' Role in OFCCP Compliance
By: Recruiting Specialist
The Industry Liaison Group (ILG) was created by the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) to foster communication as it relates to affirmative action and equal employment opportunity employment (EEOC) to the federal contractor and employer community. Along with the national organization, federal contractors have formed regional ILG groups throughout the country.
If you are a federal contractor or HR manager responsible for compliance, membership in an ILG organization can prove beneficial. ILG should be considered an essential source of information on OFCCP and issues related to nondiscrimination, equal access and equal opportunity in the workplace.
ILG and its members provide a forum to address topics relevant to the federal contractor community. Sessions can include "best practices" as they relate to compliance issues, updates and changes in the laws governing OFCCP such as VEVRAA and Section 503, new trends in compliance strategies, all the way down to how to respond to an OFCCP scheduling letter, or audit.
During ILG events, contractors have the opportunity to address any issues relevant to their business, ask questions, participated in classes, and also hear from industry experts.
If you are a federal contractor who is interested in becoming a member of ILG, you can access more information here. Or for more information on OFCCP compliance, visit www.americasjobexchange.com/employer/employer-articles?category=ofccp-compliance.
