You sent your requirements to one or several staffing agencies that gave you a very nice presentation. They appear very professional and they work at rock-bottom prices.
They do, in fact, send you some very nice candidates, and you hire a few.
A few weeks go by, and you receive a Request for Information, or even more interesting, an on-site visit from the EEOC, curious about your non-discriminatory hiring practices.
Of course, your HR Department is highly professional, so why this enquiry, you ask?
Well… maybe your Staffing Agency is not aware or fully compliant with the rules prohibiting employment discrimination on the basis of race, color, sex, national origin, religion, retaliation, age and disability. Perhaps they are aware, but they just don’t document all their candidates, interviews, submittals, etc. with an EEOC probe in mind.
Would this omission or error make you responsible? Surely does! Don’t take our word for it, ask Legal. The consequences of such oversight are not to be measured only in dollars…
Every Professional Recruiter at Vitaver & Associates is fully familiar and compliant with EEOC rules, keeps complete and accurate records of all people denied a job or hired, so you don’t have to worry. This peace of mind, this protection comes standard when working with us.
