*refer to notices for additional information on qualifications, applications, testing, and selection

Federal EEO regulations* require contractors to take specific affirmative action steps regarding apprenticeship notices; follow the steps below to ensure compliance.

  1. **Send the attached apprenticeship notices with a cover letter to at least three (3) minority & female referral sources.
  2. Post the apprenticeship notices on company bulletin boards (office and/or project site).
  3. Conduct a tool box talk or meeting to review apprenticeship opportunities.
  4. Document steps 1-3 for your EEO files in the event your company is selected for a compliance review.  

*These regulations apply to both federal (U.S. Army Corps) and federally-assisted contractors (PennDOT).  For additional information, visit the U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) website at www.dol.gov/ofccp.

** CAWP has provided this notice to over 100 minority & female referral sources on behalf of CAWP members & H2AP contractors.  The Association’s efforts reduce the administrative EEO burden on contractors by eliminating step one above while maintaining EEO compliance.  To print the letter and/or list of referral sources, visit cawp.org under Services/EEO and HR.
