We’re the Real Deal When it Comes to OFCCP Compliance Knowledge
Backed by over 10 years of industry experience and recognized as the authority on regulatory knowledge and implementation, our solution and the team of experts you have at your disposal can help you go above and beyond your obligations as a federal contractor.
VEVRAA Mandatory Job Listing
State Job Bank Delivery
With DirectEmployers Association we get so much more than just peace of mind on our compliance—analytics and reporting, webinars, audit assistance; the PRM tool keeps track of our efforts and gives us a centralized place to document and report our veteran and disability outreach. I could go on and on!

VEVRAA Mandatory Job Listing
As part of your obligations as a federal contractor, the Vietnam Era Veterans Readjustment Assistance Act of 1974 (VEVRAA) requires that you list your jobs with the local employment service delivery system (ESDS), and additionally request priority Protected Veteran referrals.
We streamline the process and help you comply by conducting:
Automated job listing with appropriate CareerOneStop/ESDS—no state job bank login needed
Nightly electronic acquisition of your jobs
Reporting available in PDF or Excel format for use during audits
State Job Bank Delivery
We’ve had an exclusive partnership with the National Association of State Workforce Agencies (NASWA) since 2007, and we’ve done big things together. Through the development and creation of the National Labor Exchange (NLx), and the signed data sharing agreements with all 50 states and three U.S. territories, we have set the bar in terms of creating cohesive collaboration between employers and state workforce agencies and have a true understanding of both party’s needs and technological capabilities.
Our partnership with NASWA allows employers to fulfill their obligations by providing:
Daily job listings to state job banks via XML feed, with postings 24 hours later to facilitate priority Protected Veteran referrals
Confirmations to capture proof of delivery and receipt
On-demand reporting for documentation
For federal contractors, outreach is a necessary component of VEVRAA and Section 503 regulations. While no one can do your outreach for you, we can help you start the conversation. We provide our Members with the competitive advantage of listing their jobs on over 3,000+ partner sites that focus on diverse audiences—including protected veterans, individuals with disabilities, females, minorities, LGBTQ, early talent and more! The OFCCP is no longer looking for “good faith efforts.” They want results and tangible proof that federal contractors are building relationships with organizations that aid in creating a diverse workforce.
Our Partner Relationship Manager (PRM) goes beyond the letter of the law, making outreach efforts a company-wide responsibility and helps your entire team:
Access the available list of the OFCCP’s partners and contacts
Track outreach and recruitment efforts with local partners
Document interactions and communication with partners
Report outreach efforts and effectiveness
Tag or categorize partners for better granularity in reporting
Rate partner effectiveness for easy assessment
Send automated list of jobs to partners
Target community-based organizations with Targeted Job Distribution
…all of this with unlimited users and training for your entire team.
