Newton Enhances Applicant Tracking System to Address Changes to OFCCP Compliance Regulations
This critical enhancement is comprehensive and enables employers to create and deploy an online application process that fully complies with the new OFCCP mandates created by changes to Section 503 and VEVRAA regulations. The new enhancement to Newton’s hiring software features the following and more:
-An OFCCP introduction page used to explain the new application process to job applicants
-Enhanced voluntary self-identification functionality to accommodate protected veterans
-A digital version of Form CC-305 for applicants to complete easily online from any internet connection
“We’ve always focused on designing our OFCCP compliance functionality to be rock solid. There is no alternative. Employers rely on our applicant tracking system to provide what amounts to recruiting insurance. While it’s not always the sexiest concept to market, complete, accurate OFCCP compliance functionality is a critical must-have for government contractors,” said Joel Passen, Newton’s Co-founder.
Newton has partnerships with leading recruitment compliance consultancies, affirmative action specialists and labor attorneys. The latest enhancements to address Section 503 and VEVRAA regulation changes have been vetted by experts and will likely serve as a model for the rest of the applicant tracking software industry.
“We speak with employers every day and we know there is a lot of confusion regarding OFCCP compliance and the new Section 503 and VEVRAA regulations. Employers can’t just leave recruiting compliance to chance. That’s why our team studies the regulations, partners with AA experts and why every feature of Newton is designed with OFCCP compliance in mind,” explained Passen.
