Adverse Impact Analysis
We have taken a proactive role in ruling out unintentional bias in our employment
decision by applying adverse impact analysis methodologies. Adverse impact refers
to an employment decision or policy that has disproportionate effects on a protected
class. EEOC’s Uniform Guidelines on employee Selection Procedures states:
"Adverse impact may be found when a selection process for a particular job
or group of jobs results in the selection of members of any racial, ethnic, or sex
group at a lower rate than members of other groups. The enforcement agencies will
generally regard a selection rate for any group which is less than four fifths (4/5)
or eighty percent of the rate for the group with the highest selection rate as constituting
evidence of adverse impact..."
To evaluate adverse impact for hiring decisions, applicant flow data must be collected.
