WORKPLACE LAW LOWDOWN | OFCCP Announces New Online Directory

By: Karen L. Piper

On Friday, July 21, 2017, the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (“OFCCP”) announced a new on-line directory to assist federal contractors in identifying prospective minority, female, disabled and veteran job seekers.

The directory is called the Employment Referral Resource Directory (“ERRD”). The Directory contains lists of organizations that have “agreed to be recruitment and job referral sources for contractors seeking qualified job applicants.”

The web page says employers can seek information on-line or download a directory in an Excel spreadsheet by region and/or state. The sheet for Michigan contains 32 entries. This is good news because many of the organizations identified by OFCCP in 2013 when the OFCCP set specific goals and benchmarks for hiring and retaining protected veterans and individuals with disabilities are no longer around. Hopefully, the new lists will assist federal contractors who are required to write affirmative action plans to locate qualified protected veterans and individuals with disabilities.
