Under 41 C.F.R. §§ 60-217(c); 60-300.44(f); and 60-741.44(f), federal contractors must document outreach and recruitment efforts for qualified minorities, females, and individuals with disabilities, as well as protected veterans (if the contractor is subject to veteran regulations). In an effort to help contractors identify programs that assist in providing job referral services to women, minorities, veterans, and individuals with disabilities, the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) maintains an Employment Referral Resource Directory.

OFCCP’s directory lists, by state, governmental and nongovernmental not-for-profit resource organizations that refer workers with a variety of job skills. The directory is a great starting point for contractors looking for assistance in hiring qualified applicants and fulfilling affirmative action and equal employment opportunity obligations.
