Page Location: Admin > Codes > EEO Classes

EEO Classification codes are used to track the EEO Classification (EEO-1 or EEO-4 depending on the organization) assigned to a position.

NOTE: The codes, as listed below, are hard coded for use with the standard AAP reporting in Cyber Recruiter.  Changing any of the codes will require custom AAP reports be created and maintained in the Report Writer. If you are using the Express Version of Cyber Recruiter, it is highly recommended that the codes NOT be changed since the Report Writer is not available in this version.  

User View: This field can be added to the requisition request process (create req form).  It's is displayed on the Job Info Tab on the Main page of the requisition. 

Import Code Key: EE

.csv file should contain Code & Description in that order.

Current Recommendations, based on current EEO-1 regulations, are as follows:

Code Description 
1.1 Executives / Senior Level Officials and Managers 
1.2 First / Mid Level Officials and Managers
2 Professionals
3 Technicians
4 Sales Workers
5 Office / Clerical
6 Craft Workers - Skilled
7 Operatives - Semiskilled
8 Laborers - Unskilled
9 Service Workers

Creating EEO Codes

Important Considerations: Cyber Recruiter codes cannot contain certain symbols such as commas, quotes, periods, apostrophes or ampersands and the user will get an error message when trying to enter or import codes containing them. There are also certain character combinations that must be avoided because Cyber Recruiter is programmed to strip them (even if they are in the middle of a code or description) as they can be used by others to reference potentially dangerous procedures or scripts that could cause harm to your Cyber Recruiter system. These combinations include: SP_ or sp_ and XP_ or xp_. Also a double dash will be converted to a single dash. There are a few other combinations not listed here that could be stripped, but it is extremely unlikely that they would be used in codes or descriptions.

After clicking "Add new record." enter in the necessary information to create a new code.

Field Purpose
Code Unique Identifier for the drop-down option. This code is written in the raw data and is referenced to determine the description to show on the screen. If the code is removed from the Admin > Codes section, this value will still be in the Requisition file for reporting purposes unless the file is edited and saved after the code was deleted. When importing data for Requisitions use this value and NOT descriptions for the import spreadsheets.
Description This is what is displayed on the screens and on the website for searching.


Inactivating EEO Codes

EEO  codes can be inactivated. When the code is inactivated it will no longer be an option to select when updating the system or displayed in grouping/search options on the website. Inactive codes in search lists and reports inside Cyber Recruiter will be segmented so all active codes appear first and then inactive codes appear under a header ---Inactive---

To inactivate a code, edit the code and check mark the option for 'Inactive'.
