Online Apps and EEO Compliance Regs

The OFCCP released the final definition of what is an "applicant". Effective February 6, 2006, an Internet applicant is one that meets the following criteria: 1. The individual submits an expression of interest in employment through the Internet. 2. The company considers the individual for employment for a particular position. 3.
