OAB LEGAL WEBINAR: FCC EEO Rules
Event Date: August 28, 2018
Event Time: 10 - 11 a.m.

The NCAB, OAB and VAB came together for their third-quarter legal webinar of 2018, which covered FCC EEO rules. The session was led by Stephen Hartzell, partner at the associations' FCC law firm Brooke, Pierce, McLendon, Humphrey & Leonard LLP. With the FCC’s decision to move EEO oversight from the Media Bureau to the Enforcement Bureau, the importance of compliance with the FCC’s EEO rules has never been more important. This webinar provided a review of the FCC’s requirements for EEO compliance. Among the topics discussed were:

  • The FCC’s general EEO requirements
  • The FCC’s recruitment requirements
  • The importance of non-vacancy outreach activities
  • Reporting requirements
  • Recordkeeping requirements
An archive of the session is now available, along with a PDF copy of the presentation slides. Brooks Pierce has also updated the 2018 FCC's Equal Employment Opportunity Rules Guide to help stations understand the current requirements for FCC EEO compliance. If your station would like additional an additional hard copy, email the OAB's Carrie Newton at cnewton@oab.org or call 614.228.4052.
