Training Overview

Is your organization meeting affirmative action requirements? Understand your obligations during the pandemic.

Financial institutions must adhere to several affirmative action obligations, including those under:

  • Executive Order 11246 (affirmative action for women and minorities)
  • Section 503 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 (affirmative action for individuals with disabilities)
  • VEVRAA (affirmative action for protected veterans)
  • Executive Order 13672 (prohibiting discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity)

Despite the additional layer of challenge rendered by the COVID-19 pandemic, you remain obligated to meet these legal requirements. Now is a perfect time to revisit the laws and examine your workforce and practices to ensure compliance.
