Contract-to-Hire and the OFCCP

Lita S. - Aug 23, 2016
Back to Ask the Experts

Our IT department frequently creates a contract-to-hire position when they are uncertain of the ultimate workload a project will create. Sometimes they will initially contract for 2-3 individuals and may eventually hire all, some, or none.

Do we have to list these positions with the ESDS (it is possible – even likely – that at least one contracted individual will be hired as an employee.)? If yes, do we need to include a time frame (even though we may not know)?

If we do hire someone permanently, what is considered the hiring “pool”?
