9 © All rights reserved Contractor’s Affiliated Entities May Need AAP 1.common ownership 2.common officers/directors 3.parent has de-facto control of sub 4.common source for personnel policies 5.operations are co-dependent

10 © All rights reserved APPLICANT ISSUES AAP examines whether the number of women and minorities working for a contractor is in proportion to the number of women and minorities in the applicant pool (and labor pool).

11 © All rights reserved Why Applicant Definition is Significant Applicant definition determines the group for whom employer must track race and sex. 41 CFR 60-1.12(c). –Employers argued for narrow definition, OFCCP/EEOC wanted broader definition. –EEOC has a broad definition – OFCCP created 2-track definition

12 © All rights reserved “Traditional Applicant” (EEOC) “Applicant”: someone who “expresses an interest in employment” For traditional hiring methods (paper resumes, paper applications, expression of interest orally), this means: –You cannot limit “applicants” to just those who are selected for interview. –You cannot limit “applicants” to just those who fill out an application or follow employer’s other requirements. –You cannot limit “applicants” to just those who are minimally qualified for the position. –Can you exclude unsolicited resumes?

13 © All rights reserved “Internet Applicant” (OFCCP) “Internet Applicant” (OFCCP) Four Elements of New Definition: –The job seeker has submitted an expression of interest in employment through the Internet or related electronic technologies. –The employer considers the job seeker for employment in a particular open position –Job seeker appears to have the advertised, basic qualifications for the position and –Job seeker has not withdrawn from consideration.

14 © All rights reserved Practical Application of Internet Definition Can toss internet submissions for “any open position.” Employer expected to post position qualifications on the Web. Can toss applications that don’t meet basic (minimum) qualifications. Can’t limit internet Applicants to those who are interviewed. Can’t limit internet Applicants to those who follow procedure if you consider them anyway.

15 © All rights reserved “Advertised Basic Qualifications” Qualifications the employer advertises (e.g. posts a description of the job and qualifications on the Web site). Non-comparative (“3 years experience” versus “one of the top five in the pool of job seekers”) Objective (“batchelors degree” not “top tier school”) Job Related
