NT Lakis attorneys are pleased to present the first in a two-part series of guides presenting a digest of state and local affirmative action requirements. This first guide looks at state AAP requirements, and will be followed soon by a second guide focused on local AAP requirements.

We have designed the digests to identify and help employers comply with state and/or local AAP requirements beyond those enforced by the U.S. Labor Department’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP).

Please note that the digest is designed to provide an overview of those states that impose their own affirmative action requirements, along with a brief discussion of those requirements, and is not intended to provide legal advice. These requirements can vary from jurisdiction to jurisdiction, and employers are advised to consult with counsel as to the steps that may be necessary to comply with a particular state’s requirements.
