Course description

The new Federal regulations on Affirmative Action for protected veterans and individuals with disabilities present new and specific requirements for Human Resources professionals in the areas of outreach and documentation. This practical class provides guidance on key topics, a listing of recruitment resources, a compliance checklist to keep on-track, and the insight of highly experienced management consultants. The class not only examines how to comply with the regulations; it also discusses the best strategy to adopt if your company faces an audit by the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs. The material provided is an essential guide for the HR professionals of Federal contractors as they craft their response to these new requirements.

This class was developed by Lou Rodarte in collaboration with Michael Wade. Lou is the resident expert on Affirmative Action and OFCCP compliance at Sanders Wade Rodarte Consulting Inc.

In his capacity at Qwest Communications he had direct responsibility for agency interaction with the EEOC, multiple state government EEO offices and the NLRB. In his staffing and recruiting positions he was responsible for creating and managing hiring Blitzes for large numbers of hires or difficult to find technical hires across 13 states. Lou also created specialized veteran hiring programs to hire veterans directly off military bases. Given this background, it is not surprising that Lou is noted for his practical yet sensitive approach.
