Affirmative Action PlanningWhat Are EEO And Affirmative Action Program Requirements?

Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) prohibits discrimination against employees on the basis of race, sex, creed, religion, color, or national origin. The term "Affirmative Action" describes policies aimed at a non-dominant group to promote its access to education or employment.

What Are EEO Requirements?

Besides abiding by EEO laws, certain employers must also file a report with the government. The EEO-1 Report requires company employment data to be categorized by race/ethnicity, gender, and job category, and be submitted annually.

Who Is Required To Submit An EEO-1 Report?

Any employer with at least 100 employees located in the 50 states or the District of Columbia, and any federal government contractor and first-tier subcontractors with 50 or more employees and at least $50,000 in contracts must file as well.

What Is The Purpose Of An Affirmative Action Program?

The purpose of Affirmative Action is to establish fair access to education and employment opportunities. Re education, Affirmative Action can refer to admission policies so as to provide equal access to education for those groups that have been historically excluded or underrepresented, such as women and minorities. Re employment, the purpose of Affirmative Action is to create a workforce that is an accurate reflection of the demographics of the qualified available workforce in the relevant job market.

Who Is Required To Have An Affirmative Action Program? What Does An Affirmative Action Plan Do?

While all employers should be mindful of EEOC (Equal Employment Opportunity Commission) laws, the only companies that are required to have a written, up-to-date AAP in place are federal contractors or subcontractors who have fifty or more employees and a contract of $50,000 or more.

For federal contractors and subcontractors, Affirmative Action must be taken by covered employers to recruit and advance qualified minorities, women, persons with disabilities, and covered veterans.

What Does An Affirmative Action Plan Require?
