Internal Hires & AA Record Keeping

Anonymous - May 19, 2016
Back to Ask the Experts

Suppose a company has a requisition open to external applicants, but the position is ultimately filled internally due to interest shown by a current employee. What are best practices for Affirmative Action record keeping in this situation?

Should the employee apply for the opening?

Would the external applicants still be considered as part of the applicant pool or would they be excluded since they can no longer be associated with an external hire?

Any insight in addition to these questions would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.
