Setting the Standard for OFCCP Compliance
OFCCP compliance is complex. Gain peace of mind by working with the Circa experts for your OFCCP compliance program.
What is OFCCP?
The Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) promotes diversity in hiring and the workplace. OFCCP requires businesses with federal contracts and subcontracts to recruit, employ, and promote protected and underrepresented groups in the workforce.
Navigating Compliance Through Critical OFCCP Requirements
Federal contractors are responsible for complying with legal obligations to take affirmative action and not discriminate on the basis of race, color, sex, sexual orientation, and many other protected statuses. It’s crucial to understand OFCCP’s complex and stringent laws.
- Under VEVRAA, the mandatory job listing rule requires employers to list job openings with the Employment Service Delivery System (ESDS) to ensure veterans have the first opportunity to apply. This helps contractors reach their veteran hiring benchmark.
- Section 503 protects individuals with a disability (IWD) from discrimination, and requires employers to recruit from this group. Contractors are required to strive for a 7% utilization goal within their workforce.
- Executive Order 11246 requires contractors to take affirmative action to create equal job opportunities for women, minorities, veterans and IWDs through outreach. The regulation also prohibits discrimination against employees and applicants throughout the hiring process.
To minimize risk and remain in compliance when recruiting, you need a trusted partner who ensures your recruiting practices adhere to the law.
