Mike’s clients range in size from 50 employees to several thousand. He writes Affirmative Action Plans for employers located in Greater Boston, including Metro West, the North Shore, and the South Shore and represents them at Affirmative Action Compliance Reviews. He has clients in other parts of Massachusetts as well as New Hampshire, Maine, and Rhode Island. Some of these employers have locations in other states and Mike takes care of those Plans too. He is fully equipped to prepare and defend an Affirmative Action Plan located anywhere in the United States, and has. His clients conduct business in all industries (except construction, which follow different regulations) including high tech,banking, manufacturing, and any other industry with a product or service that the federal government purchases.
Employment laws and regulations constantly change. Unless you have someone on your staff dedicated to compliance, you should outsource your Affirmative Action Plan. Mike writes Affirmative Action Plans every day and keeps current on the latest regulations and how to interpret them as well as what the latest trends are by the OFCCP when they audit an Affirmative Action Plan.
You want and need an Affirmative Action Plan that meets all the regulations but that allows you the flexibility to do it your way and that expresses your company’s values. Often that means complying with the regulations that require having an Affirmative Action Plan that is ready for an audit, maintaining applicant, hiring,promotion, and termination records, keeping your fingers crossed that the Affirmative Action Plan will never be audited, and going about your normal HR business. It’s noble to want to increase diversity, improve opportunities for women and minorities, veterans,and people with disabilities, and improve your company’s bottom line. If you want to do that, the Affirmative Action Plan can help. But the truth is that most companies hire Mike to put together an Affirmative Action Plan that:
is complete and professional
meets the minimum requirements
is honest but still puts the company in the best light possible
they hope no one will ever ask to see
will pass an audit
doesn’t require them to do anything extraordinary
Mike’s clients rely on him as their partner and friend to tell them the truth, to take care of them, and to keep them honest. Mike and his clients work together to follow the rules in a practical way, to minimize their risks, to keep the Government out of their hair or to make the Government go away as soon as possible. Mike’s clients rely on his judgment and his integrity, based on his knowledge of them, their company, and other companies, as well as the law, to make the best recommendations and decisions for them.
