Today’s OFCCP Compliance Tip: Documenting OFCCP Data Requests
During OFCCP audits, your habit should be to always demand (politely) of OFCCP Compliance Officers that they reduce their many requests for documents and information to writing (typically, these days, via e-mail). This insures that the OFCCP CO has been thoughtful and more precise in his/her request and you are precisely clear what OFCCP wants before you start a perhaps otherwise futile gopher chase. Also, you now have a record of the request which becomes important as the audit drags on into years and newly assigned COs pick up the file sometimes oblivious to history. (Those who do not read history are doomed to repeat it!) Read more.
