Navigating the FCC’s Equal Employment
Opportunity Rules & Public File Requirements
Presented by: David Oxenford, Wilkinson Barker Knauer LLP
Wednesday, October 14, 2015 - 2pm Eastern
With the changes in ownership, personnel, and hiring efforts that inevitably occur at stations over time, it is important that station owners, managers, and hiring personnel are on top of the FCC’s rules and requirements for EEO and Public File.
This session will provide a primer on the FCC’s Equal Employment Opportunity rules, including the outreach required for the opening of jobs at the stations, the non-vacancy related activities that stations should be engaging in, and the recordkeeping requirements to make sure you keep all the necessary documents to support what the station did.
This webinar will also detail the obligations for station’s public files. What documents need to be in the file? How long must they be retained? What are the usual trouble spots for broadcasters?
The goal of the session is to refresh your understanding of the rules, provide insight into the FCC’s enforcement and guidance in the past few years, and highlight some common pitfalls.
