Affirmative Action Plans for California Companies

California Employers Association can help your California company develop and implement an affirmative action plan if your federal contracts require compliance.

Unsure if you need an Affirmative Action Plan?

From surveying your workforce, to collecting data, and training managers, we’ve got everything you need to meet your compliance obligations. Let us streamline your AAP compliance obligations including proper data collection and analysis, recordkeeping, plan design, and implementation. Sound complex? We're here to help.

You need an AAP if you have 50 or more employees and:

  • You have a federal contract or subcontract of $50,000 or more
  • You provide products or services of $50,000 or more to a federal contractor or subcontractor that is required to have an AAP
  • You are a depository of federal funds
  • You are a financial institution that issues and is the paying agent for US savings bonds and notes
