Federal Civil Rights & EEO Compliance
What's happening: Federal contractors and recipients of federal funds (e.g., disaster funding, COVID funding, PPP loans, etc.) are often required to comply with federal civil rights and nondiscrimination laws (e.g., pay equity, disability hiring, nondiscrimination) as a condition of receiving federal money or contracts. If not, they can be suspended or debarred, and their relationship with government as a contractor or recipient of federal funds can be cut off in the future. The Biden administration has vowed to eliminate systemic discrimination and has made moves to do so.
Who you are: federal contractor and recipient of federal funds who wants to be proactive in eliminating systemic discrimination in your organization.
(A) Don't get suspended or debarred (i.e., keep a business relationship with the government in the future)
(B) Review and update your current organization's practices, policies, and structure; and
(C) Figure out what to do for everyday operations.
