If You Have Questions About Compliance Issues, Just Call us

There are many requirements to document and comply with EO 11246 and Benchmark is here to help you. We will develop your written Affirmative Action Plan and discuss the results of statistical reports that tell us if you are in compliance relative to your applicant flow, hiring, termination and promotion practices. As required by law, we will be comparing your workplace practices with the most current census showing availability of workers in your recruitment area by EEO category. We will then help you understand what this means and how to address any underutilization that may be identified in your plans. We will also keep you informed of changing laws and regulations as well as important emerging issues relating to Internet Applicants. And, we will be there to support you if you are selected for an OFCCP compliance review (desk audit or on-site audit). We generally do not need to visit your location to work with you and we offer our services at a very competitive and affordable price.
