The AAP contains confidential, proprietary information including salary data and organizational structure. Employees are only permitted to view the text portion of the AAP.
As long as you can demonstrate that you have made good faith efforts, there should be no penalty. There is recognition that goal attainment takes time, especially in a company that has been around for a long time. These efforts should be documented.
Certification letters are notifications from other companies letting you know that they are an Affirmative Action employer. As a result, you might be too.
Yes. One contract or subcontract puts the entire organization under the Executive Order.
No. AA does not require an employer to hire less qualified people. It does require the contractor to make a good faith effort to be more representative if goals exist.
A good faith effort is any effort that seeks to include more minorities or females into the selection pool. Typically, this involves recruitment or development efforts not otherwise done in the past. These efforts should always be documented.
You don’t have quotas, and there really is no such thing as a quota in Affirmative Action. Instead, there are numeric targets (typically percentages) established that are consistent with the marketplace. Good faith efforts need to be made toward them. Quotas are only established when an employer has been ordered by a court to have them.
EEO means ensuring that all job applicants have equal access to employment and selection processes. Affirmative Action goes beyond non-discrimination and requires federal contractors to engage in additional efforts to reach out to minorities & females and make them aware of employment & promotional opportunities.
