Q. We post all open positions on our web site. Is there a law (or at least a guideline) that requires jobs be posted for a certain period? We post most jobs for five days, but leave them posted for 10 days if it’s a position for which we have few minorities apply. No one knows why. Should we continue? —D.M., Missouri
A. I’m not aware of any law that requires jobs be posted for a specific number of days. That said, consistency should always be your goal in enforcing employment policies. I suggest you pick one length of time for job postings and stick with it. You can always make a change, if needed.
