OFCCP Proposes a Compensation Data Collection Tool
Join the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) for a Listening Session on October 6, 2011 from 3:30 p.m. - 4:30 p.m. (Eastern Standard Time).
On August 10, 2011, OFCCP published an Advance Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (ANPRM) on a proposed new compensation data collection tool. Possible uses for the collected data include generating insight into potential problems of compensation discrimination by federal contractors and subcontractors that warrant further review or evaluation by OFCCP or a contractor self-audit.
The ANPRM comes at a critical time for our nation's workforce. Women still earn only 77 cents for each dollar earned by a man. The wage gap is even greater for women of color: non-Hispanic white women make 75 cents for every dollar earned by a non-Hispanic white man, while African-American women make 62 cents and Latinas make 53 cents for every dollar earned by a non-Hispanic white man. This listening session is an opportunity for you to offer suggestions and recommendations related to the scope, content and format of the data collection tool.
Public comments on the ANPRM are accepted through October 11, 2011 and can be submitted on regulations.gov or by mail/courier to OFCCP. Click 41 CFR Parts 60-1 - Non-Discrimination in Compensation; Compensation Data Collection Tool.pdf to review the Federal Register Notice for the ANPRM.
