Are there requirements on how long a job MUST be posted?

Anonymous - Oct 14, 2016
Back to Ask the Experts

We are considering developing a firm policy around how long our positions will be posted. I have some concerns about holding us to a minimum number of days that a posting will be live both internally and externally. Does the OFCCP REQUIRE a certain amount of time for postings? I was advised per an AAP attorney, that we should require our positions be posted for a minimum of three days externally and 4-5 days internally, but I didn’t think there was anything REQUIRED by OFCCP around posting requirements. I’m confused! Please advise.
