Federal Contractor Requirements

Pamela C. - September 6, 2018
Back to Ask the Experts

I have several questions.

1. If a job is posted on the company website and the state board. Then the posting is closed for whatever reason (a candidate was hired; the position was closed temporarily; whatever) and then the hiring manager wants to re-open the job does it then become a new posting requiring it to be posted on the state job board?

2. If a job is posted open on the company website and the state board of a particular state but the hiring manager then finds a candidate he likes and tells them to apply, but will now be home based at a different office in a different state, does that job need to be posted in the state where it will actually be based? Such as, a job posted in Georgia, but the person they like lives in Florida and will be home based in Orlando rather than Atlanta.

3. If the OFCCP were to audit a company, do they expect to see the job posting requisition, verification the position was posted on the state board and when/why is was closed?

4. I have always heard that the OFCCP strongly discourages applicants to be manually forwarded from one job posting to another; that it is strongly recommended the applicant applies to each position they are interested in or being hired for? Can you comment on the practice of a company forwarding applicants from one position to another or from a closed position to an open position?
