The Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) has revamped the Employment Referral Resource Directory (ERRD). The ERRD lists government and nonprofit organizations as references to assist federal contractors' hiring of qualified applicants. ERRD was developed as a compliance assistance tool to help federal contractors identify local job referral services for veterans, individuals with disabilities, women, and minority groups. OFCCP hopes these updates will allow federal contractors to navigate the directory more easily to meet their compliance obligations.
The new modernized ERRD provides the following benefits:
- 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.
OFCCP has committed itself to providing proactive, meaningful compliance assistance to help contractors understand and meet their equal employment opportunity obligations. The hope is that these edits to the ERRD will further this aim and serve as a useful tool for federal contractors.
