NT Lakis attorneys and non-attorney professionals are pleased to present the latest in our “AAP Tune-Up” series of guides that are designed to provide suggested tasks that contractors can perform during their annual affirmative action plan (AAP) cycles to help ensure compliance with the regulatory requirements enforced by the Labor Department’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP).  Our “Tune-Up” guides focus on proactive steps that can be taken by a contractor that are not required by OFCCP regulations, but which if implemented can help minimize problems that might arise in case of an OFCCP compliance audit.

In this latest guide, we focus on “applicant dispositions,” the data most contractors create and maintain to record information on when and why an applicant “falls out” of the selection process.

Given the importance of applicant and hiring data to OFCCP compliance requirements, federal contractors need to keep reliable records that enable them not just to perform necessary analyses, but also to explain and justify their selection decisions.  Applicant disposition codes are a crucial aspect of maintaining meaningful applicant data.  This guide is designed to help you analyze your applicant disposition codes to ensure that they meet these goals.
