As an update to last month’s report that OFCCP has put 800 establishments on notice of upcoming audits, we have learned that as of Friday, March 17, 2017, OFCCP has started sending out letters actually initiating audits.
Unlike the courtesy scheduling announcement letters (CSALs) which provide advance notice of an audit, the Scheduling Letters put in the mail by OFCCP of Friday initiate audits and starts the 30-day response time clock. As a result, it is imperative that your establishments are on the look out for these letters from OFCCP and forward them to the proper people within your organization as soon as they are received. Time is of the essence . . .
