by John Fox, Esq. - Sep, 2013
September 2013 When is an OFCCP "Placement Goal" a "Utilization Goal" or a "Benchmark Goal" or a "Quota"? This month's column is about the magic, majesty and meaning of words. One of my favorite books is Lewis Carroll's "Through The Looking-Glass and What Alice Found There" (and even before The Jefferson Airplane and Grace Slick immortalized it in the 1967 rock song "White Rabbit"...

by Debra Milstein Gardner - Sep, 2013

Numerous scenarios could have occurred during the way, but the end result is OFCCP issuing a notice of violations (NOV) and a conciliation agreement (CA).

5 Ways To Keep Up In Today's Job Market
by Erika Andersen - Sep, 2013
Lately my job has been changing. For the past couple of decades, the business I started in 1990 was small enough that if I didn’t have a good month, the business didn’t have a good month. Now it’s grown beyond that: how much work I do for clients in a given period doesn’t have much to do with how well we’re doing overall. In fact, doing work for clients is no longer the single highest value thing I can do for the business’...
