  Newly Revised Affirmative Action Manual Now Available
AGC of America recently released a revised edition of the Affirmative Action Manual for Construction, which is now available for sale.

The manual covers the affirmative action requirements that are unique to contractors performing federally funded and federally assisted construction contracts -- from the notification of award, to the groups protected by Executive Order 11246, "good faith efforts," the sixteen steps, subcontractors, record retention, obligations to veterans and disabled workers, the requirements of the Drug-Free Workplace Act, and recordkeeping and compliance reviews. In addition, the manual’s 14 appendices provide standard equal opportunity clauses, notices, model policies, and programs to assist contractors in complying with all the elements required by federal affirmative action mandates.

To purchase the manual, visit AGC’s online bookstore at www.agc.org/e-store  or call 1-800-AGC-1767, and request item #2084. [ return to top ]
