  • Tracking Applicant Accommodations
    Asked by Anonymous - Feb 27, 2017
    Are federal contractors required to track/document reasonable accommodations made for applicants in order to comply with a potential OFCCP audit? If so, what is the best way to do this?

     
  • Candidates from a staffing agency
    Asked by Anonymous - Feb 17, 2017
    If we utilize a staffing agency to assist us in sourcing for candidates, are those candidates also required to apply to the position posted on our site? If not, how do we capture the applicant information?

     
  • Sourcing for potential positions
    Asked by Anonymous - Feb 17, 2017
    We have won a contract that will have task orders issued in different regions across the US and we would like to build a pipeline of candidates for the possible positions coming in the future. Many of these positions are in states and/or US territories that we currently don't have work in. There are a total of 300 possible openings. Are we able to post one job per job title and state that we are accepting applications and that the work could be in multiple states (listing out the states) or do we need to do an opening per job per location? We are unable to register with the ESDS in many of the states because we do not have any current work there.

     
  • reference checking before an offer
    Asked by Julie M. - Feb 17, 2017
    I understand background and drug tests should not take place prior to the offer. What about reference checks?

     
  • Question about E-Verify for Federal Contractors
    Asked by Anonymous - Feb 14, 2017
    I am in the process of establishing a more comprehensive E-Verify program for our company. We are Federal Contractors. I cannot find on IDES, or the Illinois Dept. of Labor if we still need to do the "E-Verify Employer Attestation Form"? Does anyone know?

     
  • Posting positions to fill with a current contractor
    Asked by Jana M. - Feb 09, 2017
    Would you be able to direct me to where I can find out whether a federal contractor is required to post a position for which we will convert a contractor to an FTE? We have several contractors here at QTS and often we convert them into a full-time position without posting the role b/c it is their exact same position, just moving them from contractor status to an FTE. Thank you!

    This is a good question, and one that not many federal contractors take the time to consider. In this situation, OFCCP would be interested to know at what point the opportunity for diverse outreach was provided. If the process for selecting the contractor was competitive and followed the regulatory requirements for posting, then the conversion, without competition is less problematic. The safest route, however, is to go ahead and post the position as you would any other opening.
