Surveying Applicants and Employees
by Jacquelyn Peterson - May, 2015
Federal contractors and subcontractors must survey applicants and employees for gender, race/ethnicity, protected veteran status, and disability status. The data collected from the surveys is used for creating statistical reports to analyze employment patterns and is used in the employer’s Affirmative Action Plan (AAP).

by Scott Pechaitis, Esq. - May, 2015
As the persistent “wage gap” continues to make headlines, the Obama Administration has its sights set on eradicating pay discrimination. The directive from the White House to EEOC and OFCCP is, “We know pay discrimination exists – go find it.” As a result, OFCCP has sharpened the tools in its compensation investigation toolbox, including the following: Rescission of the Compensation Standards and Voluntary Guidelines....
Sorting Out the Confusion of Applicant Tracking Codes
by Debra Milstein Gardner - May, 2015
You are probably thinking “Oh no - another article about applicant tracking codes?” I fully understand; however, I ask one simple question. How many of you are as befuddled as I am regarding the countless verbiage applied to applicant tracking codes? Disposition codes, status codes, stages, rejection reason codes. Are these terms synonymous? Each applicant tracking system (ATS) refers to the staging of candidates different...
Lessons Learned from OFCCP’s Budget Request for FY 2016
by Ahmed Younies - May, 2015
President Obama has just a bit over 18 months left in office. Consequently so does the OFCCP—in its current incarnation, that is. Once Mr. Obama leaves office, there will likely be a new Director, and the OFCCP will subsequently reflect shifting priorities. How much those priorities shift, of course, will depend on who gets voted into the White House next. In the meantime, the OFCCP has released its budget request—and the jus...

by Soul Cherradi - Apr, 2015
Discrimination cases are essentially “games” of making relevant, suitable, or valid comparisons between suitable, valid, or appropriate comparator(s). While anti-discrimination laws do not define discrimination in a comparative sense, comparators have had clear appeal as an evidentiary or heuristic aid for gauging whether discrimination has occurred. Comparators and comparisons make visible the occurrence of comparatively adv...
Recruiting, Hiring, and Retaining Individuals with Disabilities and Veterans — The Real Benefits to Your Company
by Cindy Karrow, SPHR - Apr, 2015
I am frequently asked for examples of the benefits derived by companies who hire Individuals with Disabilities (IWDs) and Veterans. Often this question comes from an Affirmative Action Planning (AAP) Manager who is looking for support from staffing representatives, hiring managers, and/or executives for their company’s outreach and recruitment activities. This support may take the form of budget dollars—at job fairs or time...
Tips on Responding to New Scheduling Letter and Itemized Listing — Part II
by Bill Osterndorf - Apr, 2015

The previous version of the itemized listing aske...
Data This, Data That: Why Managing Data is Vital to a Successful AAP
by Lynn Clements - Apr, 2015
Just as in cooking, an Affirmative Action Program (AAP) is only as good as each of its ingredients. The most important ingredient in a successful AAP is good data. Federal contractors would be wise to spend more time understanding this ingredient before they begin mixing in others. Simply put, any analyses of a federal contractor’s personnel activities or progress in meeting placement goals is only as good as the initial...
