Affirmative Action Planning


You hunt high and low to find the right people for your organization. Your search for talent is all about finding the positive qualities you want in an employee, and prejudice and bias have probably never even crossed your mind as you recruit and hire. But that doesn’t mean the government can’t accuse you of discrimination—even if no one has ever filed a complaint against you.

That’s how challenging EEO and affirmative action regulations are. An OFCCP auditor can come knocking anytime. When the auditor contacts you, any data used to build your plan is fair game―that’s why having your AAP prepared by legal counsel can protect your workforce demographic information, personnel selection, and compensation date. Are you prepared? Protected?

Plan for your own peace of mind
