Demonstrate your understanding of the major laws that impact employment decisions made by federal government contractors/subcontractors.

You are an HR Manager for a large plastics 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. There is uncertainty among your organization’s top officials about whether or not to become part of this project, even though it would be very lucrative. The disagreement centers around the preparation of an affirmative action plan and the goal achievement requirements imposed to correct underutilization.

In this assignment you are asked to discuss additional EEO compliance requirements impacting a federal subcontractor. Also, be sure to discuss the important components of an affirmative action plan (expanding on the goal-setting process), and discuss how affirmative action goals should relate to an organization’s strategic human resources plan.
