Compliance terms you need to know...

Equal Opportunity Employer
Virtually all employment rights stem from Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. In short, Equal Opportunity Employers must not allow national origin, race, religion, color, sex (including pregnancy and sexual orientation), disability, genetic information, veteran status, or age to contribute to hiring, promotion, or firing decisions.   
Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC)

The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC)

is the agency that enforces federal employment discrimination laws. Its main tasks include tracking hiring data and fielding complaints from employees about possible unlawful discrimination.

Any privately-owned company, state agency, labor union, or joint apprenticeship committee with 15 or more employees has to comply with the EEOC laws. 

Such laws protect employees and job applicants against employment discrimination when it involves:

  • Unfair treatment or harassment because of race, color, religion, sex (including pregnancy, gender identity, and sexual orientation), national origin, age (40 or older), disability or genetic information.
  • Denial of a reasonable workplace accommodation that the employee needs because of religious beliefs or disability.
  • Retaliation because the employee complained about job discrimination, or assisted with a job discrimination investigation or lawsuit.
Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP)

Part of the US Department of Labor, the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP), ensures that employers doing business with the Federal Government comply with laws and regulations requiring nondiscrimination.
OFCCP regulations prohibit federal contractors and subcontractors from discriminating in employment decisions based on race, color, religion, sex, and national origin. It also requires them to make outreach efforts to hire and promote qualified individuals with disabilities, as well as Vietnam era and other covered veterans.

Affirmative Action Plans (AAPs)

Affirmative Action Plans outline an organization’s programs, policies, and procedures for proactively recruiting, hiring, training, and promoting women, minorities, people with disabilities, and veterans to ensure that all individuals have equal opportunities in employment. 

AAPs include numerical measures with the intent of increasing the workplace representation of various groups – historically women and ethnic minorities – compared to the general representation of individuals with similar skills in the relevant labor market. An AAP also provides a road map for management to correct problem areas and support recruitment goals. 

The OFCCP enforces compliance with affirmative action requirements. Proactive steps by contractors to comply with the OFCCP’s regulations will ensure that organizations will continue to be eligible to receive federal contracts, as well as reduce the risk associated with an audit and an OFCCP-imposed penalty.

EEOC compliance requirements

The EEOC and the OFCCP together require that employers:

  • develop a written affirmative action plan relating to minorities, women, people with disabilities, and covered veterans
  • apply the affirmative action plan not only to the hiring process, but also to recruiting, firing, promotions, harassment, training, wages, and benefits
  • collect demographic data on the race, gender, disability status, and veteran status of your applicants
  • create an internal audit and reporting system
  • post notices of nondiscrimination and employees’ rights
  • file an annual EEO-1 report
  • add language in your job postings affirming that you consider all applicants without regard to race, color, religion, sex or national origin, and include the required tagline: “EEO/AA employer.”
The EEO-1 report

The EEO-1 report is a compliance survey that requires certain companies to provide a record of their employment data categorized by ethnicity, race, gender, EEO-1 job category, and designated salary bands.

The EEO-1 report is submitted to the EEOC and the OFCCP and must be filed by:

  • employers with 50+ employees who have federal contracts of $50,000+
  • employers who do not have federal contracts but have 100+ employees
Federal Contracts
If your business involves federal contracts or subcontracts worth more than $10,000, you must comply with EEO requirements or your contract could be canceled, and you may be penalized.
Section 503 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 (Section 503)
Section 503 prohibits federal contractors and subcontractors from discriminating against individuals with disabilities and requires employers to take affirmative action to recruit, hire, promote, and retain these individuals.

Executive Order 11246
 Executive Order 11246 prohibits federal contractors and subcontractors from discriminating based on race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, or national origin, and to take affirmative action to recruit, hire, promote, and retain these individuals. 

Additionally, federal contractors agree not to take adverse employment actions against applicants and employees who, under certain circumstances, ask about, discuss, or share information about their pay or the pay of their co‐workers.

Vietnam Era Veterans’ Readjustment Assistance Act of 1974 (VEVRAA)
VEVRAA prohibits federal contractors and subcontractors from discriminating against individuals based on protected veteran status and requires employers to take affirmative action to recruit, hire, promote, and retain protected veterans.
