Affirmative Action Plans

PMP's affirmative action team provides expert assistance and advice to federal contractors and subcontractors throughout the United States.

Our practical, step-by-step approach to affirmative action planning assists companies in demystifying what can be a very complicated process.

If increased business or a diminished HR staff has caused AAP compliance to be put on a back burner, it’s time to outsource   By not assuring compliance, your company risks violations, fines or even debarment.

PMP’s clients range in size from Fortune 500 companies to companies with fewer than 50 employees. Ongoing interaction with Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) officials and auditors throughout the United States gives PMP an insider's perspective of the OFCCP, and how the various regions interpret the regulations and apply them during audits. PMP also advises and provides training to employers on virtually all concerns arising from OFCCP monitoring, including government contractor and subcontractor status, the OFCCP’s jurisdiction to audit, and single employer issues.

PMP has an exceptional record of successfully closed OFCCP audits – put our record to work for your company today. PMP's team reviews and analyzes your company's information and data to develop professionally written affirmative action plans, policies, and best practices that comply with all OFCCP regulations, saving your company time and money. You give us your information and we give you a completed, compliant plan!

PMP provides year-round support including phone and in-person consultation, webinars, and on-site and off-site training for your HR staff, recruiters and hiring managers.  A well-trained hiring team gives them the tools and knowledge of the how and why of consistently following policies and procedures and the importance of good documentation of all personnel decisions.  This is one of the best defenses against the perception of discrimination during an audit and expensive litigation.

PMP always has your company’s bottom line in mind and offers either flat fee or hourly fee options – whatever is most cost-effective for you. Working with our HR subject matter experts first for your AAP compliance reduces your company’s cost of outsourcing your AAP. However, our affiliated attorneys are always available if and when needed.

"While working with PMP, I have found them to think outside of the box and present complicated compliance matters in easier terms for other professionals. PMP stays on top of pending laws regarding Affirmative Action/EEO compliance matters, HR laws and works with companies that have gone through actual legal cases and is able to provide others with real scenarios. PMP has assisted us many times with questions where additional assistance was requested and has also provided us with Sexual Harassment Prevention E-Training. It gives me great pleasure to recommend PMP to other professional resources and companies who may need AA/EEO compliance assistance."
