What is OFCCP Compliance?
Compliance with the OFCCP mandated regulations is critically important for federal contractors. If your organization does any business with the Federal government (which most businesses do – directly, or indirectly – whether they know it or not), you are required to comply with the affirmative action regulations mandated by the OFCCP (Office of Federal Contractor Compliance Program). This federal agency has significantly stepped up regulatory oversight and enforcement in recent years, and it is imperative that you have a comprehensive recruitment outreach program to attract and hire protected groups such as transitioning veterans and persons with disabilities in order to meet the requirements. In addition, your recruitment program must also reach traditionally underrepresented groups such as women, minorities, seniors, new graduates, as well as special groups such as LGBT etc. In summary, your recruitment program should encompass every qualified candidate with a special emphasis on identifying and reaching traditionally underrepresented groups in the workforce.
