Affirmative Action Planning

Affirmative Action Planning FAQ

Affirmative Action Plans

For employers who annually develop affirmative action plans, this service involves an in-depth analysis of the current workforce and a comparison to the available labor market to identify the utilization of protected classes. In addition, we will conduct statistical tests of employment activities to see if there is an initial indication of adverse impact.

As well as producing OFCCP compliant plans, we can also develop strategies to comply with federal requirements and develop training programs to redress identified deficiencies. This process takes two to three hours of the employer’s time, and the written affirmative action plan is returned around to the employer in about three weeks.
