    Does Local Job Network satisfy 1 of the 3 required “linkage agreements” required by OFCCP for compliance?
    Answered by Roselle Rogers from Local JobNetwork™ - Mar 07, 2018
    OFCCP may specify in a conciliation agreement that a contractor enter into a linkage agreement with certain organizations. However, outside of a conciliation agreement, there is no OFCCP requirement to have formal linkage agreements with organizations. The requirement under E.O. 11246, VEVRAA, and Section 503 is to conduct outreach to community-based organizations...

  • Asked by Ashley N. - Mar 05, 2018
    I am interested in knowing what guidelines we should be following in posting contingent/future positions. For example, we are often asked to post multiple positions for a proposal effort which we may or may not be awarded - how should that be communicated in the job description/posting, and are there any other considerations in regard to remaining compliant? We are a federal contractor. In the past, we have used, "in anticipation of contract award", or something similar. Is this sufficient? Our positions automatically post to the appropriate ESDSs. Thank you very much!

    Hello, Does the OFCCP or other entity require specific naming conventions when it comes to race or ethnicity in our HCM/people management system? We are curious to know what is recommended or required when it comes to names.
    Answered by Bill Osterndorf from HR Analytical Services - Jan 31, 2018
    OFCCP doesn't have specific naming conventions in its regulations regarding race and ethnicity that federal contractors and subcontractors are required to use. However, OFCCP uses the following terms in its regulations in regard to race and ethnicity and expect employers to collect demographic data according to these categories:

    Asians/Pacific Islanders
    American Indians/Alaskan Natives

    Note that unlike EEOC, OFCCP's regulations do NOT have a separate category for Hawaiian Natives/Pacific Islanders and do NOT have a category for persons who are two or more races. OFCCP issued a directive in...

    Is it standard practice to list the contact number for the executive who administers the affirmative action program? We have it listed, but is it a requirement?
    Answered by Lisa Kaiser from The Kaiser Law Group, PLLC - Jan 11, 2018
    It is not required to have phone number listed in the AAP for the individual that administers the plan. There are pros and cons...
