Collection of EEO information

Ethel F. - Aug 05, 2020
Back to Ask the Experts

My delivery/recruiting team is speaking with applicants via our website and also actively cold calling candidates on a daily basis. When candidates apply via our website our application process collects all required information.

My question is when we are considering a candidate that we have actively cold called – recruited, do we need to collect the EEO information while they are being considered or only at the time that they are identified as a candidate that is in an offer stage? Is it ok to have these candidates fill out the application once we are about to offer them the position but before they are going through our official onboarding process?
