Adverse Impact Analysis

Adverse impact, also known as disparate impact, is when a group protected under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 is disproportionately selected through a hiring process. Groups protected by Title VII include race, gender, religion, and national origin; discrepancies in hiring rates for these groups can leave an organization liable for discrimination. While this can happen due to circumstances outside your control, many selection procedures are subtly, unintentionally biased, resulting in adverse impact when you least expect it. This is where Tetrics comes in to help you out — we can statistically examine your selection procedures and determine whether or not you have anything to worry about, as well as the best course of action if you do. If you would like more detailed information on how this is done, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
