Last week, CWC hosted its sixth annual Talent Acquisition Compliance Summit (TACS). In light of the disruption caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, TACS 2020 was moved from an in-person event originally scheduled to be held in Charlotte, NC to an online event hosted virtually (with appropriate social distancing) from NT Lakis’s offices in Washington, DC.

This year’s summit brought together human resources, compliance, legal, and recruiting professionals to discuss the current legal and regulatory challenges and obligations facing the talent acquisition function primarily in the context of their affirmative action obligations as federal contractors subject to the regulations enforced by the Department of Labor’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP).

The three-day summit was facilitated by NT Lakis attorneys, who led online discussions and provided technically sound guidance designed to help attendees manage and mitigate workplace risks associated with talent acquisition. Unlike in years past where attendees chose sessions broken out between two sets of “track” sessions, this year’s TACS agenda offered 11 hours of content broken out into 10 separate sessions over the course of three days. Sessions covered included OFCCP’s internet applicant rule, disposition code development and usage, prescreening practices, atypical selections, and many others.
