EOE statement on Pre & Post-offer self-identification forms

Anonymous - February 18, 2016
Back to Ask the Experts

Would someone please provide the wording that will meet the OFCCPs requirements for the pre and post-offer invitation to self-identify forms? I have seen so many versions that I am no longer certain what specifically needs to be communicated. I know the language must (1) notify the applicants that the company is an EOE/AA employer (2) subjet to record keeping and reporting requirements (2) voluntarily invite the applicant to self identify (3) Notify them that they are under no obligation to provide the information (4) Notify them that no adverse action will be taken should they opt out (5) Communicate that the information will be kept separate from the application. If anyone has a template of the exact language and is willing to share, I would appreciate it.
