Directive 307 clarifies and improves the agency’s compliance evaluation methodologies in support of its efforts to align pay discrimination enforcement with longstanding principles under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.

On June 7, 2013, Michele Whitehead, SPHR, of Berkshire Associates, a human resource consulting and technology firm that assists companies in building the ideal, balanced workforce, will help attendees at HR.com’s Virtual Compensation Event understand the recent publication of OFCCP Directive 307 in her timely presentation: “Understanding Directive 307: Procedures for Reviewing Contractor Compensation Systems and Practices.”

Pay equity, specifically for women, is one of the several highest priority activities detailed by the Department of Labor in its FY14 budget requests. In addition, Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs is seeking an increase of about $1.1 million to reinforce pay discrimination regulations. With this in mind, Directive 307 clarifies and improves the agency’s compliance evaluation methodologies in support of its efforts to align pay discrimination enforcement with longstanding principles under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. In an effort to provide human resource professionals in the federal contractor community a thorough understanding of Directive 307, Michele will explain the new publication, highlight the changes it will bring, and recommend ways to prepare in the event of an audit.

Attendees will learn:

  • The procedures for investigating compensation data and information under Directive 307
  • What type of data can be evaluated during a compensation audit
  • How to prepare for a compensation audit
