New Affirmative Requirements for Financial Institutions

Be ready to comply with the new regulations!  The U.S. Department of Labor issued new regulations which increase affirmative action obligations for all banks with 50 or more employees. This webinar offers practical guidance, including revised forms and logs, to enable banks to comply with the new standards as they are phased in.

On August 27, the U.S. Department of Labor issued new regulations which substantially increase affirmative action obligations for all banks with 50 or more employees. Banks will now be required to gather additional information from applicants and employees, establish hiring goals for protected veterans and disabled individuals, increase recruitment and outreach efforts to these groups, and conduct enhanced statistical analyses in their Affirmative Action Plans.

This is a re-broadcast of our 11/14/13 webinar.


  • How to offer new pre- and post-offer self-identification opportunities
  • Establishing a “benchmark” for employment of protected veterans
  • Setting disabled hiring goals
  • New recruiting and outreach obligations
  • Updating Affirmative Action Plan language
  • Disseminating updated policies
  • Effective dates for the new rules


This program is designed for community bankers charged with the human resource function, but will be of value to all bankers involved in managing employees as well as senior managers and bank counsel.
