Today’s employers have to manage an increasingly diverse work force. Diversity candidates are one of a growing group to join the labor market, and employers have to be both proactive and are required to recruit from this rich, talent pool – one that can be critical to your diversity hiring plan. For federal contractor or subcontractor, in particular, the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) mandates that employment opportunities generated by Federal dollars should be available to all Americans on an equitable and fair basis. Therefore if you conduct business with the Federal government, regulations require that you do not discriminate in hiring and employment practices, and take affirmative action to hire, retain, and promote veterans, minorities, women, and people with disabilities.
If these OFCCP requirements apply to you, the Demystifying OFCCP Compliance for Federal Contractors white paper, authored by Rathin Sinha, President and Alan Klapman, Director of Customer Care at America’s Job Exchange (AJE), is an essential read. The paper provides an easy-to-understand overview of the regulations administered by OFCCP. It also discusses the implications of the law by outlining the actions Federal contractors must perform for proactive outreach, job listing, and record keeping, and goes on to propose a comprehensive and cost-effective solution.
The paper also outlines the key attributes that Federal contractors should look for in a third-party solution, not only to fulfill their obligations for compliance, but also to boost their overall diversity hiring programs, including the hiring of veterans and candidates with disabilities.
