Is your organization meeting affirmative action requirements? Understand your obligations during the pandemic.
Financial institutions must adhere to several affirmative action obligations, including those under:
- Executive Order 11246 (affirmative action for women and minorities)
- Section 503 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 (affirmative action for individuals with disabilities)
- VEVRAA (affirmative action for protected veterans)
- Executive Order 13672 (prohibiting discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity)
Despite the additional layer of challenge rendered by the COVID-19 pandemic, you remain obligated to meet these legal requirements. Now is a perfect time to revisit the laws and examine your workforce and practices to ensure compliance.
