In the coming days OFCCP will mail approximately 2,500 Courtesy Scheduling Announcement Letters (CSALs) across the country to employer locations slated for audits.

The CSALs do not initiate audits but instead put employers on notice that their establishments have been identified for upcoming OFCCP compliance reviews.

Importantly, audits initiated under this new round of letters are subject to the Agency’s recently revised scheduling letter.  The new letter requires employers to submit detailed pay data (base comp, bonus, commissions, overtime earnings, etc.) separately for all employees in the workforce.  Because of this new requirement, and other significant changes in the new letter, we recommend employers start preparing for audits as soon as possible after receiving CSALs.

Contractors can confirm whether one or more of their establishments were mailed CSAL(s) by faxing a written request on company letterhead to OFCCP’s Division of Program Operations at (202) 693-1305.
