Internet Applicant Regulations (Overview)

"Issued on October 7, 2005, the Internet Applicant Regulations and recordkeeping rules became effective 120 days later on February 6, 2006. The primary purpose of the rule was to clarify three important issues: 1) define 'Internet applicants,' 2) outline recordkeeping requirements relative to hiring done through the Internet or related electronic data technologies, and 3) describe the information employers must solicit and submit to the OFCCP to evaluate impact within their selection processes.

The Internet Applicant Regulations require that employers analyze all expressions of interest meeting the following four criteria:

  1. The individual submits an expression of interest in employment through the Internet or related electronic data technologies;
  2. The employer considers the individual for employment in a particular position;
  3. The individual’s expression of interest indicates the individual possesses the basic qualifications (BQs) for the position; and,
  4. The individual at no point in the employer’s selection process prior to receiving an offer of employment from the employer, removes himself or herself from further consideration or otherwise indicates that he or she is no longer interested in the position.
