Affirmative Action Plan Development

FosterThomas assists companies by developing fully compliant affirmative action plans.  We exist to help companies remain in compliance.  Our plans have successfully helped numerous companies pass audits by the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP). 

Compliance with Executive Order 11246 and Affirmative Action Plan guidelines is a must.  These initiatives are not only good for business, but companies who fail to properly administer their affirmative action responsibilities can be subjected to monetary fines, suspension of current contracts or in extreme cases debarment.

Affirmative Action Plan FAQs

Did you know?

If you have 50 or more employees and a contract or subcontract worth $50,000 or more, by law you must develop and maintain a written affirmative action plan (AAP).

A federal contractor has 30 days from the commencement of their first contract to develop their affirmative action plan.

The OFCCP (Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs) is the regulatory authority and periodically conducts compliance reviews and desk audits of an organization’s affirmative action plan.

These reviews include an in-depth analysis of employee practices such as employment, transfer, promotion, hiring and termination.

Upon completion of the review, the OFCCP determines whether the organization is compliant with federal regulations.

We can also develop and file the required EEO-1 and Veteran 100 reports and can provide consultation and onsite support in the event of an OFCCP audit.

It is important to remember that affirmative action is not a quota but rather a continuing good faith effort by an organization to ensure that there is equal employment opportunity in all of its personnel decisions.
