About the Webinar

The FCC?s current Equal Employment Opportunity rules have been in place for nearly seven years, but now is not the time for broadcasters to coast on auto-pilot.

With the next broadcast station license renewal cycle just around the corner in 2011, stations need to make sure that they are familiar with the FCC?s EEO rules and are taking all the steps necessary to ensure that they stay out of trouble.

EEO continues to be a hot issue for the FCC, and one that draws many fines from the Commission, both at license renewal time and in connection with the ongoing random EEO audits that the FCC conducts several times a year.

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.

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.

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.
