Affirmative Action Plans can take up to 180 total hours, costing roughly $5,200 per plan in employee salary and another $5,200 in lost labor toward core duties—a combined cost of $10,400! Most outside vendors can create a plan for a small location at a cost of $1,500-$2,500, depending on the vendor and complexity.
And that’s without HRU’s benefit of a former OFCCP director and experts with advanced degrees in Human Resources, Business, and Statistics.

Who needs a written Affirmative Action Plan?
Are you unsure of whether your company is legally required to have an up-to-date written AAP? The following types of companies and organizations are required to have a written, up-to-date AAP in place:
Federal contractors and subcontractors who have fifty or more employees and have a contract of $50,000 or more or have Government Bills of Lading which in any 12-month period total $50,000 or more or serves as a depository of government funds in any amount, or is a financial institution which is an issuing and paying agent for US savings bonds and savings notes in any amount.
What is an Affirmative Action Plan?
An Affirmative Action Plan consists of statistical analyses of an employer’s utilization (or underutilization) of individuals from certain protected classes such as women, veterans, minorities, and people with disabilities. An Affirmative Action Plan will also contain information about the steps that will be taken in order to improve the representation of these types of individuals in the workplace. A new Affirmative Action Plan is required annually.
How Can You Maintain AAP Compliance?
In order to be AAP compliant, a government contractor or subcontractor must have a written affirmative action plan that covers women and minorities, as well as veterans and individuals with disabilities. It is the responsibility of the employer to track employment data, compensation, recruiting, and hiring.
If you are uncertain about your company’s specific requirements in order to be compliant, or are unsure of what steps to take next, please contact a member of HR Unlimited, Inc. today.
