Which sponsors are required to conduct annual reviews of personnel practices, and what should be included in those reviews?

Equal Employment Opportunity

Sponsors required to develop Affirmative Action Programs must conduct an annual review of their personnel practices to help ensure the program is free from unlawful discrimination.  This must be a careful, thorough, and systematic review of all aspects of the program, including, but not limited to:

  • Qualifications of apprentices
  • Application and selection procedures
  • Wages
  • Outreach and recruitment activities
  • Advancement opportunities
  • Promotions
  • Work assignments
  • Job performance
  • Rotations among all work processes of the occupation
  • Disciplinary actions
  • Handling of requests for reasonable accommodations, and
  • The program’s accessibility to individuals with disabilities 

The written Affirmative Action Plan must include a description of the review the sponsor undertook, and any modifications made to its practices as a result of the review.
