mandatory job listing requirement

Understanding Mandatory Job Listing Requirement

Mandatory job listing requirement is imposed by the OFCCP for Federal contractor compliance with the Vietnam Era Veterans Readjustment Assistance Act of 1974 (VEVRAA) . An organization that provides goods and services to the federal government or receives federal funds are required to comply. These Federal contractors and sub-contractors are required to list their job openings in the appropriate state-run job board. These state job-boards are often referred as ESDS job banks.


The appropriate ESDS job bank is determined by the location of a job opening. For example, an employer must list the job on the Work in Texas job board if a job opening is in Houston. The same job, if located in Miami, however, must be listed in the Employ Florida job board instead. Special guidelines apply for remote and “work from home” jobs. In addition to registering the company, selection of the appropriate state job board creates a degree of complexity that a contractor must navigate in its effort to fulfill mandatory job listing requirement.


The ESDS job banks in each state has unique requirements and user flows that add another layer of complexity. Each state may require a different set of information and follows a different verification process for a new job posting account. It may also follow different set of requirements for an account to be in good standing. The job posting flow can be completely different and job approval process may vary wildly. The complexity and time needed to meet the mandatory job listing requirement can be highly laborious and error prone for an employer.
