This presentation will discuss how new laws and regulations may change evidentiary requirements in evaluating disparate impact. The presentation will pay special attention to the statistical issues and the use of multiple regression analysis. It will focus on the 2013 Office of Federal Contract Compliance Program (OFCCP) Directive 307 and the California Fair Pay Act (CFPA) enacted in 2015. Topics to be covered include:
- The use of multiple regression analysis in examining differences between employees who are protected class members and those who are not
- Reliance of courts on conclusions modeled using multiple regression analysis
- Changes to analytical methodologies resulting from OFCCP Directive 307
- Potential new data sources that may need to be collected and analyzed as a result of CFPA
- How the removal of the same establishment provision by the CFPA can affect outcomes of a pay equity analysis
- How the CFPA may increase the importance of statistical analysis in gender bias suits in California
