Identify the eeo compliance requirements that impact a federal subcontractor.

You are an HR Manager for a large sheet metal manufacturing company. One of your largest customers has just secured a major office furniture contract with the federal government. Your customer wants your company to become a subcontractor for the project, making all of the plastic parts required. Even though it would be lucrative, there is uncertainty among your organization’s top officials about whether to join this project, given that the preparation of an affirmative action plan and the formulation of goal achievement requirements will be imposed to correct underutilization.
You have been tasked to prepare a slide presentation (10-12 slides, not counting the cover slide or the reference list slide). Include an audio component (voiceover slides), speaker notes at the bottom of each slide, or both). Watch the short YouTube video How to Add Audio into your PowerPoint for more information.
Your presentation needs to address the following:
Identify the EEO compliance requirements that impact a federal subcontractor.
Classify the important components of an affirmative action plan (expand on the goal-setting process).
Determine how affirmative action goals should relate to an organization’s strategic human resources plan.
Elucidate on your recommendations to the organization’s top officials about becoming part of this project.
Use at least five Trident Online Library sources plus any applicable background readings to support your discussion.

A voluntary self-identification form required by the office of federal contract compliance programs (ofccp) for federal contractors asks job applicants with disabilities to self-identify as disabled.

First Post—Module 2
A voluntary self-identification form required by the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) for federal contractors asks job applicants with disabilities to self-identify as disabled. This form is designed to help federal contractors and subcontractors meet Section 503 regulations, which set a target of seven percent of the workforce comprised of employees with disabilities. Nationally, there is a high rate of unemployment among people with disabilities. The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) prohibits businesses from asking specific questions about whether an applicant has a disability,
Start by watching this OFCCP video:
USDepartmentofLabor. (2015, October 13). Disability inclusion starts with you [Video]. YouTube. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TAKsPd_lIw8
Now, for your first post, defend or challenge one of the following positions (“a” or “b”):
a. The use of the voluntary form results in benefits for everyone. The use of the form leads to expanded opportunities for people with disabilities, Moreover, through use of the form, employers have a better understanding of the composition and needs of their workforce, leading to higher employee productivity, which, in turn, benefits society.
or
b. Applicants with disabilities should proceed with caution before self-identifying as disabled on this voluntary form. The employer may be able to satisfy some federal contracting requirements through these forms, but not every HR department is ethical and can be trusted to keep this information confidential in the hiring process. An applicant should wait until he or she is hired before deciding whether to disclose any disability; especially if the applicant has a non-apparent disability.
For either “a” or “b” above, bring in additional information from at least two reputable sources (library and/or Web-based). Also bring in your own personal experiences, as applicable.
Subsequent Posts—Module 2
Challenge, defend, or supplement comments made by at least two different classmates. Bring in additional information specific to the discussion. Your additional information may be from the news, your readings/research and/or personal experience. Cite your sources.

Begin this assignment by reading the following scenario:
Atlantic Shrimp is a major processor of fresh and frozen shrimp sold throughout the United States. Atlantic shrimp employs 301 workers at its principal processing plant. The plant has a relatively young crew with 73% of the workforce between the ages of 23 and 31. The plant is in Savannah, Georgia. Atlantic Shrimp requires a high school diploma or GED as a condition of employment for its cleaning crew. Right now, the entire cleaning crew at Atlantic Shrimp is Caucasian.
Prepare a 4- to 6-page paper, not counting the cover page, the requested appendix, and reference page. Address the following questions in your paper:
Explain the importance of Savannah’s labor market in considering whether or not Atlantic Shrimp is in compliance with the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Discuss relevant data you find associated with Savannah’s demographics.
Based on your readings and research, evaluate whether Atlantic Shrimp needs to make policy changes to ensure compliance with Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.  If changes must be made in complying with the Age Discrimination in Employment Act, explain specifically what changes Atlantic Shrimp should make and why they are necessary to satisfy the requirements of each of these laws.
Use at least six (6) sources, at least three (3) of which should be found on your own (outside of the module readings). Provide a 1- or 2-page Appendix discussing why your non-module sources (ones found on your own) were chosen and what criteria you used to determine that they were appropriate sources for your academic paper.
Information Literacy Emphasis
As you may recall, in ETH501 (Business Ethics), Case 1, emphasis was placed on the first step to building your information literacy skills.
Now at this “reinforced” level, the MGT516 (Legal Implications in HRM) Case 1 takes information literacy a step further by working on thought processes to evaluate each source utilized.
In HRM522 (Employment & Labor Relations), Case 1, your information literacy skills will be enhanced even further.
The grading rubric for Information Literacy has been developed to measure student success in meeting the MGT516 Case 1 expectations related to information literacy. Rubrics for the other two courses are included in their respective oral communications assignments.
