Affirmative Action Paper prepare a 1,050- to 1,750-word paper in which you describe the elements of affirmative action as it applies to public sector and private sector employers and how it interacts with Title VII requirements of Equal Employment Opportunity. There is a tension between the two laws that must be addressed and explained. Note this paper is NOT about affirmative action in general, for example as it relates to education. Your paper must address in detail, but is not limited to, the following:
Which employers are subject to affirmative action plans and why?
What do the plans require employers to do? How are plans developed?
What is the OFCCP?
What happens if employers do not meet the goals of the affirmative action plan?
Include in your paper proper citations for each of these laws, including the week’s reading.
