Our company is a federal contactor and I am trying to understand our responsibilities regarding record keeping requirements for ’employment application’ that was completed by employees during their non-completive promotional process? For context, some of our internal openings are filled through the competitive selection process where employees will complete an ‘application form’ to be considered for the position and/or sometimes employees may decide to apply for a position that is posted externally and the Company ends up hiring that internal candidate. In terms of what the OFCCP would want and/or expect to see as part on an audit, do we need to keep them (application) in the respective personnel file with the initial application (when the employee was first hired to the company)?
