  8. 8. The Regulations & How To Meet Them<br />How may contractors subject to the part 60-300 regulations fulfill the job listing requirement?<br />Contractors are to fulfill their job listing requirement by listing job openings with the appropriate employment service delivery system. Contractors may satisfy this requirement by listing job openings with the state workforce agency job bank in the state where the job opening occurs or with the appropriate local employment service delivery system where the opening occurs. <br />Is there a particular way contractors must list employment openings with the appropriate employment delivery system?<br />A contractor may satisfy the mandatory job listing requirement by using any means that is permitted by the appropriate employment delivery system for listing employment openings, which may include mail, facsimile (FAX), electronic mail, or other electronic postings. The vast majority of the state workforce agency job banks accept job listings via the Internet. Contractors may use third parties, such as private or non-profit sector job banks, Internet gateway and portal sites, and recruiting services and directories, to assist them with the transmission of job listings to the appropriate employment service delivery system. However, a contractor remains responsible for complying with OFCCP&apos;s job listing requirements. <br />6/19/2009<br />5<br />http://www.dol.gov/esa/ofccp/regs/compliance/faqs/jvafaqs.htm<br />

Capitol Street NW, Suite 142 <br />Washington, DC 20001 <br />  <br />Dear. Mr. Hobbie: <br /> <br />This letter is in response to your memorandum of April 13, 2009 to the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) concerning the “mandatory job listing” regulations implementing the Vietnam Era Veterans’ Readjustment Assistance Act of 1974, as amended (VEVRAA). Section 4212(a) of VEVRAA requires covered Federal contractors to “take affirmative action to employ and advance in employment qualified” protected veterans. In addition, “to promote the implementation of such requirement” OFCCP regulations require contractors to list most job openings with the appropriate employment service delivery system and each such employment service delivery system is to provide protected veterans priority referrals to such openings. The purpose of mandatory listing, then, is to enable states to provide priority referrals of veterans to contractors to permit the contractors, in turn, to better implement their obligation to recruit and hire veterans. The goal is to help veterans get jobs. <br />Your memorandum requested that OFCCP’s National Office provide clarification to our Regional, District and Local offices of a contractor’s obligations to list its employment vacancies with the appropriate employment service delivery system under the mandatory job listing requirement of 41 CFR 60-250.5(a)2 and 60-300.5(a)2. Specifically, you asked that we inform our staff that “Listing employment openings with the state workforce agency job bank or the local employment service delivery system where the opening occurs will satisfy the requirement to list jobs with the appropriate employment service delivery system.” <br />That requirement reads as follows: <br />The contractor agrees to immediately list all employment openings which exist at the time of the execution of this contract and those which occur during the performance of this contract, including those not generated by this contract and including those occurring at an establishment of the contractor other than the one where the contract is being performed, but excluding those of independently operated corporate affiliates, with the appropriate employment service delivery system where the opening occurs. Listing employment openings with the state workforce agency job bank or with the local employment service delivery system where the opening occurs will satisfy the requirement to list jobs with the appropriate employment service delivery system. [Emphasis supplied] <br />A contractor may satisfy the mandatory job listing requirement by using any means that is permitted by the appropriate employment service delivery system to list jobs. The regulations clearly state that listing with either the state workforce agency job bank or the local employment service delivery system will satisfy the mandatory job listing requirement, and OFCCP will reiterate this information to all of our OFCCP staff. The key is to make sure the job is listed with the appropriate employment service delivery system so that the state system is able to provide protected veterans priority referrals to Federal contractor job openings. <br />Please remember, a contractor remains responsible for ensuring that its job openings are listed with the appropriate employment service delivery system, whether the contractor lists its openings directly with the appropriate employment service delivery system, or uses a third party to list employment job openings on its behalf. <br /> <br />Thank you for bringing this issue to our attention. <br /> <br />Sincerely, <br /> <br />Lorenzo D. Harrison Acting Director <br />Office of Federal Contract Compliance <br />cc: Edward Montgomery<br />6/19/2009<br />10<br />

  17. 17. Working with a new organization is sometimes challenging and confusing, but the transfer from America’s Job Bank to VETCENTRAL has posed no problems and actually allows veterans a better access to federal contractor job listings (FCJL).<br />As a veteran I appreciate your involvement in helping veterans find employment. Thank you very much for your service and consideration.<br />
