Stocks in this article: IPDN

CHICAGO, July 17, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Professional Diversity Network, Inc. (Nasdaq:IPDN), a developer and operator of online networks that provide access to employment opportunities for diverse professionals in the United States ("Professional Diversity Network" or "PDN"), announced it has launched its enhanced Employer Recruitment Intelligent Compliance Assistance service ("ERICA" or "the service").

Equal employment opportunity (EEO) laws enforced by the U.S. Department of Labor's (DOL) Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) prohibit discrimination against job applicants and employees of federal contractors and subcontractors and require targeted outreach to women, minorities, veterans and individuals with disabilities. The new ERICA compliance product suite facilitates substantive employer engagement with diverse job seekers, utilizing best practices EEO – OFCCP compliance tools for job distribution and reporting.

ERICA combines job distribution as well as real-time and archived reporting, including documentation of applicant flow, at a single compliance source. The service seamlessly connects PDN's eight diverse employment sites for mandatory Executive Order 11246, Section 503, and Vietnam Era Veterans' Readjustment Assistance Act (VEVRAA) compliance reporting, capturing and collecting the demographic data of Internet applicants to comply with Executive Order 11246. Additionally, the service posts to state job banks with PDF snapshots of each state job bank distribution record.

Professional Diversity Network's comprehensive ERICA compliance product suite reaches over 28 million diverse candidates monthly, including PDN's nearly 2.5 million registered users.

The new ERICA compliance product suite includes distribution of PDN's unlimited job listings to thousands of state and local employment agencies and on demand reporting, joined with recruitment media and professional and social network recruitment tools.

"Too often employers who value diversity fall short in reaching their diversity hiring goals. They may succeed in complying with governmental regulations, but fail to identify sufficient diverse talent. Our mission is to increase access to solid new economy jobs for unemployed and underemployed ethnically diverse talent, as well as veterans and those who are disabled," stated Mike Hernandez, Chief Marketing and Communications Officer.
