Who does the OFCCP and the 2014 Disability Matters North America Conference have in common?

MENDHAM, NJ (02/06/14) -- Springboard Consulting LLC announces a special focus on key legislative issues at the Eighth Annual U.S. Disability Matters Conference and Awards to include all of North America. 

Who does the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs of the U.S. Department of Labor (OFCCP) and the 2014 Disability Matters North America Conference have in common?

Patricia Shiu, the Director of the OFCCP.  Patricia will not only present at this year’s conference, she will participate in a fireside chat with Springboard’s CEO, Nadine Vogel where she will address your most pressing questions relative to best practices and the implementation of the new OFCCP regulations impacting Section 503 of the Rehabilitation Act. Whether your responsibilities reside in Diversity, EEO, Talent Acquisition, Human Resources or Learning & Development, this is a session you will not want to miss. 

In addition, this year’s event will feature other important legislative issues not before addressed at Disability Matters such including The Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act (USERRA), the recent legislative change in Canada known as the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA) and of course the Americans with Disabilities Amendment Act (ADAAA) but with a specific focus on its alignment with the new OFCCP regulations. 

Add to all of this, a specialty session on service disabled veterans, a specialty session addressing accessibility, two keynote presenters and of course the always highly anticipated honoree sessions in categories such as workforce, workplace, and even our newest, Steps to Success and the result is an action packed two days of education, inspiration, celebration and networking that you will not get anywhere else.
