Best Practices for Affirmative Action Compliance

Need to develop or manage the outsourced preparation of an affirmative action program?

Understand how affirmative action, nondiscrimination, and diversity and inclusion work together in an affirmative action plan, also how to ensure compliance with OFCCP-enforced requirements.

Taught by experienced practitioners who have prepared tens of thousands of AAPs for employers of all sizes and across all industries, you’ll come away from this program understanding the “big picture” of AAP compliance, and knowing how to build and defend AAPs that showcase your good faith outreach, recruitment, and other compliance-related efforts.



Learn what you need to know about:

Effectively structuring AAPs by entity, location, or function

Building job groups to ensure compliance and minimize risk

Calculating internal, external, and final availability estimates

Managing each stage of an OFCCP compliance review

Goal setting for women, minorities, veterans and persons with disabilities
