My Biggest Work Fail: A Lesson for Millennials and Their Managers
by Lindsey Pollak - May, 2015
My first job out of college was in the business development group of WorkingWoman.com at the height of dot-com mania. Early on, I was tasked with negotiating a contract with a new client, something I’d never done before. But I was on it – referring to my notes and busily cutting and pasting verbiage. When I was finished, the contract reflected everything we had discussed – I had nailed it! But as I like to say, you don’t k...

Fair Pay & Safe Workplaces Executive Order
by Alissa Horvitz, Esq. - May, 2015
On July 31, 2014, President Obama released Executive Order 13673, known as the Fair Pay and Safe Workplaces Executive Order. The theme of the Executive Order is that when the U.S. federal government is going to use taxpayer dollars to buy goods and services from government contractor companies, the taxpayers’ dollars should not be used to buy from companies that engage in repeated, pervasive, serious or willful violations of...
Surveying Applicants and Employees
by Jacquelyn Peterson - May, 2015
Federal contractors and subcontractors must survey applicants and employees for gender, race/ethnicity, protected veteran status, and disability status.

How to Prepare for OFCCP Compensation Manager Interviews (And Why You Should)
by Scott Pechaitis, Esq. - May, 2015
As the persistent “wage gap” continues to make headlines, the Obama Administration has its sights set on eradicating pay discrimination. The directive from the White House to EEOC and OFCCP is, “We know pay discrimination exists – go find it.” As a result, OFCCP has sharpened the tools in its compensation investigation toolbox, including the following: Rescission of the Compensation Standards and Voluntary Guidelines....
Sorting Out the Confusion of Applicant Tracking Codes
by Debra Milstein Gardner - May, 2015
You are probably thinking “Oh no - another article about applicant tracking codes?” I fully understand; however, I ask one simple question. How many of you are as befuddled as I am regarding the countless verbiage applied to applicant tracking codes? Disposition codes, status codes, stages, rejection reason codes. Are these terms synonymous? Each applicant tracking system (ATS) refers to the staging of candidates different...
Lessons Learned from OFCCP’s Budget Request for FY 2016
by Ahmed Younies - May, 2015
President Obama has just a bit over 18 months left in office. Consequently so does the OFCCP—in its current incarnation, that is. Once Mr. Obama leaves office, there will likely be a new Director, and the OFCCP will subsequently reflect shifting priorities. How much those priorities shift, of course, will depend on who gets voted into the White House next. In the meantime, the OFCCP has released its budget request—and the jus...

by Alexandra Levit - May, 2015
Peer effects are directly responsible for the work ethic of one team member mirroring that of another. Is your coworker setting a good example, or a bad one?

Those who have reading my posts for a while know that I have a special interest in the intersection of economics and business, as well as the intersection of neuroscience and business. Recently, I corresponded with Ey...

by Alexandra Levit - May, 2015

The 2014 Job Preparedness Indicator study conducted by the Career Advisory Board confirmed previous reports that a skills gap exists at all levels of U.S. employment. Only 7 percent of hiring managers said that “nearly all” or “most” job seekers have the right combination of skills and traits that their companies need to fill open positions. This belief...
