Different countries have different laws to safeguard employees from any kind of discrimination in the workplace. Hence, an employer should consult the law before developing an Affirmative Action Plan for his company.


The employer should have regular internal audits and reporting to keep track of employee demographic information. The organization would also be responsible for monitoring anti-discrimination initiatives as well as monitoring the effectiveness of the Affirmative Action Plan.
