If you are a federal contractor using a staffing agency to undertake recruiting for your company’s open jobs, it’s important to ensure that your agency understands your obligations as a federal contactor and the requirements that you – and they, acting as your agent – need to comply with. As an “agent” acting on your company’s behalf, all the obligations and requirements attach to them, and it is your responsibility and in your best interest to ensure they are discharging those obligations correctly and keeping records to document compliance that you can furnish to OFCCP in the event of an audit. As the contractor, you are ultimately responsible for compliance. A similar question on Ask the Experts has been answered by Lisa Kaiser in the past and I encourage you to reference her answer here.
You can use this OFCCP audit checklist to ensure you're doing what is required to maintain OFCCP's regulations including VEVRAA, Section 503, and EO 11246. Or request a demo to streamline your compliance and recruiting efforts.
