Adverse Impact Exercise

Sysdo Industries has been in a rapid growth mode for the past year. The company has worked hard to recruit the number of employees needed to fill organizational vacancies. However, because of the pace of recruitment and hiring, the company has not had an opportunity to look at its hiring data with regard to EEO considerations. A sequential, non-compensatory hiring approach is employed. That is, candidates must “pass” each stage to be hired. Below are the recruitment and hiring statistics for 2016 for the engineering job family. Using the 4/5 rule as a guide, examine the data and answer the following questions:

(a) From the data presented below, is there any “overall” indication of discrimination? If yes, what type of discrimination is occurring? How do you know? Show all calculations.

(b) Examine the entire employment process. Is there potential for discrimination occurring at any stage in the process? If yes, who is being discriminated against and where in the process is discrimination occurring? Show all calculations.

(c) What argument, if any, could the company make in response to charges of discrimination based on the adverse impact analysis?
