Is it necessary to have an affirmative action plan?

Affirmative Action is the law.

Executive Order 11246 requires affirmative action and prohibits federal contractors from discriminating based on race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, or national origin.

Section 503 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 prohibits federal contractors from discriminating against individuals with disabilities and requires employers take affirmative action to recruit, hire, promote, and retain these individuals.

The Vietnam Era Veterans' Readjustment Assistance Act (VEVRAA) prohibits federal contractors from discriminating against protected veterans and requires employers take affirmative action to recruit, hire, promote, and retain these individuals.

"A Tribute to Dr. King"

We understand Affirmative Action Plans can be a bit overwhelming and slightly intimidating, especially if you haven’t done them in the past. Our team at Optimum Human Resource Systems has created a short, instructional “AAP Basics” white paper. This paper is not meant to make you an expert in Affirmative Action Plans, that's what we are here for. The paper will give you a basic understanding of why AAP’s are done and what is all involved in their creation.
