Work-Life Balance: Seriously?
by Kelly Gurnett - May, 2013
“Work-life balance” has an aura of myth around it—like a unicorn that grants wishes or a bathing suit that fits in all the rights places, is comfortable, and allows you to do basic movements—like, you know, swimming. (Sorry, can you tell I’m contemplating bathing suit season?) We’d like to think work-life balance exists, because we’d all desperately love to have it. But in our heart of hearts, most of us have a creeping sus...

Nobody should be the victim of their own resume. Odds are you have neglected your resume. It is a poor reflection of who you are, what you have done and where you are going. I see so many horrific resumes! This is your key marketing and networking document whether you like it or not. Once you come to grips with the fact that this document will probably determine how your career path goes, hopefully you will spend more time...
Hire for Humility
by Dr. Maynard Brusman - Apr, 2013
The ability to select, motivate, develop, and retain top people is critical to a company’s success. If you want to build a company where people love to work you have to know how to hire and keep great people. Unfortunately, a poor hire can cost a company a great deal of money and cause undue distress and wasted time for everyone involved. Great companies and managers start with optimistic, change-resilient, and committed p...

The Fox OFCCP Report
by John Fox, Esq. - Apr, 2013
April 2013 HOW OFCCP COVERS HOSPITALS HERE'S THE RACK-UP AFTER THE UPMC CASE DECISION I was going to write about the provocative way OFCCP currently selects contractors and contractor establishments for audit, but the tenor and volume of calls and e-mail traffic to my desk in the last two weeks from health care clients and industry representatives have persuaded me I need to...
Choosing an Affirmative Action Plan Date
by Chris Lindholm - Apr, 2013
One of the least discussed, yet most contentious areas in Affirmative Action Planning is the determination of the date in which the Affirmative Action Plan (AAP) goes into effect and the determination of the associated employee snapshot date. For years I have spoken with clients, consultants and the OFCCP regarding their perception on choosing an appropriate plan date and it always surprises me how disparate the answers can...
What Does OFCCP Want?
by Bill Osterndorf - Apr, 2013
Much has been written about the U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) in the last few years. OFCCP has a number of significant new initiatives, most notably its recent directive regarding the evaluation of compensation data that federal contractors and subcontractors will be asked to provide during compliance reviews. OFCCP has also gone through a number of changes to the manner...
Why It Pays to Collect Data Beyond What OFCCP Requires
by Dr. Hossein Borhani - Apr, 2013
Some of the OFCCP’s decisions on whether a contractor has discriminated in its hiring decision making process are driven by the result of the gross calculation of hiring rates, availabilities, and impact ratio analyses that OFCCP conducts during the Desk Audit review period. Below, using a simple example, I show why gross calculations on aggregate data sometimes provide misleading results and conclusions. I will also discus...
by Sandra Zeigler, Esq. - Apr, 2013
The preservation of institutional knowledge can mean the difference between a finding of discrimination and a finding of no violation in an OFCCP audit. Institutional knowledge can tell you how and why a particular situation exists. For example, suppose Jennifer, a widget designer, is among the last hires in a down market 2010. The entire widget designer staff is shortly thereafter subject to a pay freeze and the company inst...
Don’t be Frivolous: Focus on the Job, Not the Life
by James Thompson - Apr, 2013
“He’s frivolous.” I was in my early 20s and had already worked for a government contractor when I had a big-time job opportunity come available at the leading multinational technology and consulting company. Two words described this opportunity—launch pad. While you figure out that name brand company, I’ll also add that the opportunity was stellar for someone starting out and the pay was good. Based on my degree and te...
