Two EEO Taglines in a Direct Placement Job Posting

Anonymous - Jan 22, 2020
Back to Ask the Experts

If we as a staffing agency recruit for direct placement position with a client, we may include the client name in some of the postings. Our agency would perform the recruiting functions however, our client would ultimately make the decision on who will be selected for the job and the client obviously would be the employer once the candidate is hired.

Given this information, would we include our EEO tagline as well as the client’s EEO tagline? My thought process is that since we are recruiting, we would want to include our tagline. Should we also include the client’s tagline since they have the final say with regard to who will be hired as well as the fact that they will be the candidate’s employer?

My other thought on this is that what if there are two taglines and our tagline does not line up with the client’s tagline (i.e. we may have additional protected groups outside of the OFCCP requirement whereas the client only has protected groups listed that meet the minimum OFCCP requirements).

Should or should we not include both EEO taglines in the job posting?
