OFCCP Updates Employment Referral Resource
To make the platform more user friendly and conveniently accessible, the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) has revamped the Employment Referral Resource Directory (ERRD). The OFCCP created the ERRD as a compliance tool to assist federal contractors in identifying job referral services for veterans, individuals with disabilities, women, and minority groups. Federal contractors can use the ERRD to find government and nonprofit organizations as references to assist in identifying and hiring qualified applicants. The agency desires to expand its directory as widely as possible and encourages referral organizations who are not in the directory to submit their information.
The updates to the ERRD include:
Search component and search results now merged on one page for a more seamless experience.
Multi-selection now available when using the search fields.
User friendly on mobile and desktop browsers.
With the updates to the ERRD, federal contractors will be able to navigate the directory more easily to meet their compliance obligations. They will now be able to make more efficient and convenient searches for referral organizations on a variety of media, including mobile phones. These changes will help contractors more readily identify organizations that will help with recruitment efforts and assist them in meeting their regulatory obligations.
