November is here and the federal contractor community is bracing for a new round of CSALs. Recall that at the last ILG National Conference, OFCCP announced its plans to release another audit scheduling list in November, in time for Veterans Day, that will include VEVRAA Focused Reviews. We’ve also heard OFCCP say that this list will include Higher Education institutions. This is separate from the scheduling list that it plans to release in Spring of 2020, which will include “Promotions Focused Reviews.”
What will OFCCP look for in the VEVRAA Focused Reviews? We’re hoping to learn more about this next week at the Veteran Outreach event that OFCCP is co-hosting with the Veterans Employment and Training Service (VETS). OFCCP will be speaking on “Focused Compliance Reviews under the Vietnam Era Veterans’ Readjustment Assistance Act (VEVRAA).” LocalJobNetwork will be at this event and we’ll be sure to post updates on this blog soon after.
What can you do to prepare in the meantime? Understanding your obligations under VEVRAA is a good first step. Below is a high level summary that you should review with your HR and talent acquisition teams to ensure that you are compliant. You can also download our Compliance Self-Audit Checklist for a comprehensive list across all three regulations.
