Employers that contract or sub-contract with the federal government should be prepared to have hiring practices scrutinized by the U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP). One area of compliance where employers are often noncompliant is in the area of properly tracking internet applicants. If the applicant information is not properly tracked, employers are unable to perform the analysis necessary to determine whether or not there is any adverse impact in the selection process.
