About This Session

Much confusion still surrounds the legal definition of the term “applicant” and “internet applicant”. To comply with Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) regulations, federal contractors need to be well versed on the definition of these terms. The rule states that federal contractors must keep data specifically pertaining to recruitment practices centered on internet hiring and the solicitation of race, gender and ethnicity of "internet applicants." But how does the OFCCP define these individuals? Join Recruitment Manager Mike Bazinet of Grifols and employment law expert John C. Fox of Fox, Wang & Morgan, P.C. as they discuss:

• The legal definition of an “applicant” under the OFCCP’s program and how “internet applicants” are defined the same as a hard paper “applicant”

• How recruiters and compliance experts interpret the term “applicant”

• How to effectively join compliance and recruitment professionals together to create an effective and compliant recruitment strategy

• The benefits of a strong relationship between the recruiter and compliance team
