Background checks & EEO

Performing a compliant background check can be complex process. EEO/OFCCP reports are essential, but time consuming. Workable makes these tasks easier, with less data entry and less admin.

Built in EEO compliance

If you operate a business in the USA with 15 or more staff, or you’re a contractor or subcontractor for the US government, you’ll need to comply with EEO laws and OFCCP regulations. Workable will help you stay compliant, without the hassle of data entry.


The Equal Opportunity
Employer disclaimer

When you post a job via Workable, your company careers site will display an Equal Opportunity Employer disclaimer. Applicants will have the option to fill out the voluntary EEO survey directly after applying for a job, or they’ll receive an email with a friendly reminder to come back and complete it later.


Tracking reasons for disqualification

Tracking the reason for disqualifying a candidate is required as part of the EEO report. Workable makes this easy; as you move to disqualify a candidate, simply select a reason from the list provided or enter a custom response of your own.
