Employer's Manual on Affirmative Action in Employment.
Kentucky State Commission on Human Rights, Frankfort.
The express purpose of this manual is for its use by business and industry in Kentucky as an aid to eliminate discrimination. Affirmative action is defined here as a comprehensive effort by an employer designed to: employ women and minority persons where they are under-utilized; include minority persons and women in all facets of the company's operations--from management to maintenance; increase company awareness of an interest in the whole of its community; and, insure that company policy toward equal opportunity is not negative, and not neutral--but positive. A model plan is detailed. It is asserted that the manual should be used by a company in developing its own affirmative action policy; that it incorporates quite specific and comprehensive policies and procedures, which, if adopted and followed, should help a company move toward the goal of equal employment opportunity. Testing and other employee selection criteria are discussed. Several lists of Kentucky-based organizations which may be able to assist a company to recruit and hire minority and female persons are given, including: National Association for Advancement of Colored People; Urban Leagues; Official Human Rights Agencies, Unofficial Human Rights Agencies, Women's Groups, Community Action Commissions, Black Communication Media, State and Local Agencies, Schools, and Area Development Districts.
