BGSU employees, community members and area businesses and professionals have the opportunity to receive free training in many aspects of compliance directly from representatives of government agencies during the fifth annual Compliance Day.

Sessions will be led by representatives from the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC); Ohio Department of Job and Family Services, Veterans Programs; Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs; the U.S. Department of Labor, Wage and Hour Division; Ability Center and the Ohio Civil Rights Commission (OCRC).

The open sessions will cover a variety of topics regarding new regulations, the Civil Rights Act of 1964; EEOC’s strategic enforcement plan for fiscal years 2017-2021; disability awareness and resources; the Fair Labor Standards Act; powers and  duties of the OCRC as it relates to employment; types of unlawful discrimination (Ohio Revised Code 4112);  advantages of hiring a veteran; overview of the military skills translator, and new 503/VEVRAA regulations and lessons learned since the regulations have been in effect. 

“Compliance Day is designed to provide additional knowledge from the subject matter experts, who serve as regulators in their respective fields,” said Lisa Dubose, director of employee relations, professional development and EEO compliance. “It is imperative that organizational leaders continually update their understanding of existing or new laws and regulations pertinent to the workplace. We are pleased to offer this prestigious, no-cost training at Bowling Green State University.”

The training is recommended for deans, chairs and directors; federal contract holders; eeo compliance officers; hiring directors; managers and supervisors; professionals in the fields of ability/disability services, veterans services, law, human resources, and others.
