All financial institutions with more than fifty (50) employees must have affirmative action plans in place and updated annually. If you need information on complying, the ABA has a manual which costs $125 to members and $188 to non-members that will help. This "just updated" manual analyzes applicable federal laws and shows how to write or modify affirmative action plans to minimize liability. Statutes covered include the Civil Rights Act, the Drug Free Workplace Act, and the Freedom of Information Act, among others. For more information, call ABA's customer service at 800-338-0626.
