When may an employer certify candidates for affirmative action purposes?
An employer may use supplemental certification to add to the certified pool when:
(1) Per the employer's certification procedure, the number of eligible candidates being certified is fewer than the total number of candidates eligible for certification;
(2) The employer's approved affirmative action plan shows that a goal exists in the job category for the particular affected group; and
(3) There are no individuals on the internal layoff list for the class who satisfy the competencies and other position requirements for the position.
