Equal Opportunity In Employment And Federal Contractors

Equal Opportunity In Employment And Federal Contractors

Many not-for-profit organizations enter into various Federal grant contracts to provide the funding necessary to carry on many of the organization’s charitable missions. Making sure the organization is in line with the requirements of equal opportunity in employment and federal contractors is paramount. Piggy-backing along with these Federal grant contracts are a host of compliance requirements which, at times, require dedicated personnel within the organization to oversee. Often overlooked is the importance of the organization’s compliance with Department of Labor Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) laws.

ABIDING BY EEO

Although certain laws such as the prohibition of discrimination on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, national origin, or status as an individual with a disability or protected veteran are often complied with solely based on the ethical values of the organization, certain requirements, such as recordkeeping, can unintentionally fall between the cracks. Instances of non-compliance with EEO laws puts the organization’s status as a Federal contractor at risk. This could potentially result in a loss of Federal contracts. The following Department of Labor link provides numerous resources, such as compliance assistance materials, recordkeeping requirements and applicable laws and regulations, that not-for-profits are required to follow in order to keep their Federal contractor status: http://www.dol.gov/compliance/topics/hiring-eeo-contractors.htm#recordkeeping.
