Webinar: ID# 1021513
Recorded CD
About This Course:
Federal contractors and subcontractors are required to track applicant data for their affirmative action plans. However, even companies who properly track applicant data treat the process as a purely recordkeeping exercise.

Failure to maintain proper and robust information regarding applicant disposition is the most common error employers can make which results in Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) findings of discrimination and awards of many thousands of dollars.

This webinar is designed to guide those persons responsible for applicant tracking on practical and effective strategies for the disposition of applicants as a tool for defending against claims of discrimination.

We will also discuss recordkeeping steps critical to support effective applicant tracking.
