We help you meet your obligations. We don’t get in the way, we help you get ahead.
We are national experts on providing compliance related services that will quickly move your brand forward, and most importantly, our assistance won’t burden or interfere with day-to-day business operations. It will enhance it. PMR’s unique speciality is designing and implementing legally mandated compliance programs. At the end of, or in avoidance of a long legal process, we can quickly and economically help you put into place post-litigation commitments.
Our clients not only meet compliance mandates, but in the process we have helped many clients uncover strategic marketing and performance insights that have had a dramatic impact on the bottom line. In short, we can do more than help your company move past the litigation or the threat of it – we can provide insight that will start a new chapter in your brand’s performance; a chapter with the highest employee performance goals being set, achieved and surpassed.
You can have confidence in PMR. Our post litigation compliance work has spanned a wide range of civil rights and consumer protection cases in the areas of employment, public accommodations, fair housing, mortgage lending, insurance, and franchise investment.
PMR has frequently been recommended and jointly selected for independent, neutral post-litigation services by both plaintiff and defense counsel. We have helped clients meet their obligations following aggressive litigation involving both private firms as well as the United States Department of Justice, United States Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, the California Department of Corporations, and California State Attorney General’s office. Our approach has been extensively reviewed and is respected. Our goal is to help clients move beyond litigation, as they implement injunctive relief and get back to business while helping clients learn and grow.
Monitoring/Compliance Oriented Services
Neutral Third Party Independent Monitoring
Our goal is to move beyond divisive litigation. PMR has been a trusted neutral third-party resource for regional and national consent decrees, permanent injunctions and settlement agreements.
We can take a proactive approach in helping to develop new policies and procedures, establish a complaint hotline, assist with intake and investigation of complaints, oversee document retention and review and generate any required compliance assessment and reporting.
Discrimination Testing/Matched Pair Testing
PMR has unparalleled experience in the area of matched pair discrimination testing; the principals of PMR have designed and implemented numerous national and regional projects involving over tens of thousands of tests. We have conducted testing in a wide range of formats in the areas of public accommodations, sales and rental housing, homeowner’s insurance, mortgage lending, franchise investment and fair housing. Many of our testing and training programs have been developed pursuant to Consent Orders and, as such, our methodology, forms, and procedures have been repeatedly reviewed and approved by various government entities, including the U.S. Department of Justice.
Compliance Training Programs
We have designed and implemented legal compliance and non-discrimination training programs in the areas of public accommodations, employment and housing. Our programs have dealt with issues related to race, color, sexual orientation and national origin discrimination, as well as sexual harassment and gender issues. Through these projects, we have had the opportunity to work in 49 states, educating tens of thousands of management and non-management employees.
