INDIANAPOLIS -- January 16, 2014

Today DirectEmployers Association, a trusted employer-driven association of
talent acquisition and inclusion leaders, has the unique opportunity to work
with key personnel in the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs
(OFCCP) to conduct a listening session at the U.S. Department of Labor,
exclusively for members of the Association. Moderated by employment law expert
John C. Fox, Fox, Wang & Morgan, P.C., this session will feature the OFCCP’s
Patricia Shiu, Director; Debra Carr, Director, Division of Policy, Planning
and Program Development; and Naomi Levin, Branch Chief for Policy Development
and Procedures, Division of Policy, Planning and Program Development. The
participants will work toward dispelling any misinformation that surrounds the
OFCCP’s revisions to the Vietnam Era Veterans’ Readjustment Assistance Act of
1974 (VEVRAA) and Section 503 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, giving
federal contractors a chance to adjust their individual compliance strategies
before the implementation date of March 24, 2014.

“A large portion of our membership represents the federal contractor
community,” commented Bill Warren, Executive Director, DirectEmployers
Association. “With all of the information and interpretation that surrounds
the OFCCP’s revisions to VEVRAA and Section 503, this opportunity gives our
members the ability to glean accurate information directly from the source,
providing them with a clear direction on how to implement the new requirements
into their strategies.”

Prior to this exclusive listening session, members of the Association were
asked to submit questions regarding the new regulations to generate an
interactive discussion among the OFCCP representatives and the company
participants to create greater understanding among the federal contractor
community. Select members from companies like Armstrong, BAE Systems, Bechtel,
Citizens Bank, DuPont, Hilton, Marriott, KPMG, Raytheon and Sodexo were also
invited to the Department of Labor to experience this event in-person, while
the membership as a whole was invited to listen in virtually.
