Why is it So Important? • OFCCP collected over $67.5 Million in recent years from back pay and alleged discrimination • Overwhelming findings occur in the hiring/selection process - $$ paid to unsuccessful applicants not hired, but employers failed to document or provide evidence why non-selection was made • Inability to explain hiring decisions led to discrimination findings –OFCCP “infers” lack of documentation is due to unfavorable actions • The BEST method to defend ourselves is to EXPLAIN through appropriate documentation
