An Affirmative Action Plan documents the employer’s policies, procedures and practices used to make sure that its employees and applicants have equal opportunities in hiring, promotion, training, discipline and related areas. The Plan includes an analysis of how the employer’s hiring and other employment practice results compare with what would be expected based on the available labor pool. It identifies any problem areas, sets goals for them, and describes how the employer addresses them.

The contents of an Affirmative Action Plan must meet requirements established by the Office of Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP), part of the US Department of Labor. To see a sample of an Affirmative Action Plan on their website, click here.
