Hillsboro, OR, June 21, 2017 --(PR.com
)-- Edupliance announces webinar titled, “New EEO-1 Reporting and Compliance 2017” that aims to update attendees on the significant changes the EEOC recently made to the EEO-1 survey, its impact on businesses, and what can be done now to prepare. The event goes live on Thursday, June 29, from 01:00 PM to 02:30 PM, Eastern Time.
One of the most important forms is the annual EEO-1 where employers have to identify the race and gender of their employees by various employment categories. The EEOC uses EEO-1 data to support civil rights enforcement and to analyze employment patterns, such as the representation of female and minority workers within companies. The OFCCP uses the data to determine which company establishments to select for compliance reviews. Both federal agencies are responsible for enforcing federal anti-discrimination laws and the EEO-1 that you will be filing may serve as an indicator of whether either of these agencies should be taking a closer look at your employer's employment practices. The EEO-1 is a key piece of information in determining how well an employer is complying with anti-discrimination laws before federal auditors decide to take a closer look for themselves.
The government compiles the information on the forms and may target an employer for an audit or investigation if the information suggests that they are not in compliance with discrimination laws. Now the government is seeking even more information – employer compensation data.
The 90-minute webinar will be conducted by Susan Desmond, an expert with over 30 years of representing management in all areas of labor and employment law. She is a principal with Jackson Lewis PC. A frequent author and speaker, Ms. Desmond is listed in Best Lawyers in America and has been named by Chambers USA as one of America’s leading business lawyers for labor and employment law. She is also listed in Mid-South Super Lawyers and Louisiana Super Lawyers.
