On October 7th, 2005 the Department of Labor, Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) issued a ruling on regulations that require federal contractors and subcontractors to collect gender, race, and ethnicity information from job applicants. The OFCCP monitors federal contractors to ensure that they provide equal employment opportunities without regard to race, gender, color, religion, national origin, disability and veterans' status.
According to the OFCCP regulations, the length of time records must be kept depends on the size of the company and the contract it holds. For contractors who has fewer than 150 employees or does not have a Government contract of at least $150,000, the minimum record retention period shall be one year. Contractors with more than 150 employees and a contract of $150,000 are required to maintain the records for a period of two years.
The Jobbex Job Board Software OFFCP add-on feature will enable our clients meet the OFCCP requirements by allowing them to maintain all activity associated with candidates and applicants and to generate a comprehensive report containing all the required information outlined in the EEO and OFCCP regulations.
The built in EEO/OFCCP tracking and reporting functionality will enable them to request EEO/OFCCP information from applicants and to proactively assess their compliance.
