Increased scrutiny by the Department of Labor’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) has involved efforts to determine whether systemic discrimination exists in Federal Contractor pay practices with regard to females and minorities, as compared to males and non-minorities. OFCCP’s compliance evaluations include a request for compensation information. Paragraph 11, of the Itemized Listing, requests that compensation data be submitted in a summary format. Contractors have a choice as to how this data is submitted. In addition, OFCCP has issued Voluntary Guidelines on conducting systemic compensation discrimination analyses for federal contractors in advance of compliance evaluations.
Because pay and other compensation can be analyzed in many ways, Gerstco offers a full spectrum of compensation analysis services to support federal contractors during OFCCP Compliance Evaluations or to assist with the implementation of Agency Voluntary Guidelines.
