Berkshire Associates Appoints Lynn Clements as Director of Regulatory Affairs

COLUMBIA, MD–July 31, 2014, Berkshire Associates Inc., a leading human resources consulting and technology firm, announces the appointment of Lynn A. Clements as its Director of Regulatory Affairs. Lynn spent nearly a decade in integral roles at the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) and the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC)–and in recent years worked as an employment attorney where she counseled clients through a wide range of Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) regulatory issues and compliance audits.

Lynn’s appointment serves to further strengthen Berkshire’s mission to invest in world-class talent in order to provide its clients with stellar solutions. Due to her unmatched background in both law and government, Lynn’s role at Berkshire includes advising clients and staff on all areas of affirmative action and EEO compliance.

Prior to joining Berkshire, Lynn served as a shareholder and employment attorney at Jackson Lewis P.C. She also held positions as a senior level policy advisor for the DOL and EEOC, including the Acting Director/Deputy Director of the Policy Division of OFCCP–where she oversaw all policy and regulatory initiatives. Lynn’s experience uniquely qualifies her to address even the most complex compliance issues.

“We are very pleased Lynn Clements is joining Berkshire at such an exciting time for our company. This strategic hire not only benefits clients, but further drives Berkshire to the next stage of innovation and growth,” says Beth Ronnenburg, SPHR, President of Berkshire Associates. “With new compliance regulations continuing to impact the industry, Berkshire will have the advantage of a former OFCCP official’s perspective when developing solutions to help contractors manage their requirements. Bringing Lynn onboard is a monumental win for our clients. We couldn’t be more excited.”

Commenting on her new role at Berkshire, Lynn said, “I look forward to joining a company with a common drive for helping contractors understand and manage their compliance obligations in a way that makes sense for their business. I am delighted to be able to help Berkshire continue to provide leading affirmative action and equal employment opportunity solutions, services, and training.”
