Points to Ponder:  UW - A Diverse Workplace (OFCCP Training)

In response to the growing number of Protected Veterans and Individuals with Disabilities around the country and in order to create more diversity with the workplace, the U.S. Department of Labor, Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) has developed new programs to encourage employers to focus marketing and recruiting efforts towards qualified workers within these two segments of the population.

To assist in fulfilling the OFCCP mandate, Human Resources is offering training to the campus community to provide an opportunity to present information on best practices in fair hiring and to increase awareness of the employment issues pertaining to Protected Veterans and Individuals with Disabilities.

The OFCCP course is required for any and all employees involved personnel decisions, including:

  • All aspects of hiring (including sitting on an interview committee)
  • Tenure and promotion,
  • Performance evaluations, and
  • Disciplinary actions including termination.
The OFCCP training covers Equal Opportunity Employment, Affirmative Action, and specific regulations related to Protected Veteran and Individuals with Disabilities.

Individuals participating in or assisting with searches should complete the OFCCP training no later than March 21.

You can register for this online course here.
