Affirmative Action Plans (AAPs)
Written affirmative action plans are required of employers who employ fifty (50) or more employees and have contracts, subcontracts (and/or some grants) with the federal government in excess of $50,000. Often comprising over 100 pages of statistical and narrative material, these plans must be maintained on an annual basis.
Affirmative action plans can take up dozens of hours to create. Don't have the time to create an affirmative action plan? Looking to outsource? CMEA can design a comprehensive affirmative action plan that reflects your organization while addressing the necessary federal laws and regulations.
If you are contacted by the OFCCP requesting to review your AAP, you don't want to have to scramble to put an inferior plan together. Not complying with affirmative action plan regulations can result in the termination of government contracts already in effect and may disqualify you from future government contract opportunities. That is lost revenue to your company! And contrary to popular thought, any company (large or small) can have their plan audited.
