The EEOC will require many firms to file additional wage and headcount data soon. These filings will expose your wage and hour data to statistical testing by the EEOC, OFCCP, and potentially private plaintiffs, via FOIA. The EEOC has proposed three sets of statistical tests for the initial screening of potentially hundreds or thousands of employee groups within a company. The statistical tests described by the EEOC are well-known and well-tested, but are less frequently used and not simple to do. However, they are available in on-line apps (EquiCalc), and you can gain a huge advantage by identifying, and potentially mitigating, any issues before the EEOC, OFCCP or private litigants inform you or your C-Suite of any problems.
In this webinar, AACG’s labor litigation experts will discuss the EEOC’s data collection process, the statistical tests proposed and how you can perform your own tests on your employee data prior to filing any EEOC-related reports. Your test results will allow you to spot potential issues before they become problems, understand their causes, and take corrective actions in your 2019 filings. Previewing these findings will help put you in a good position to respond to a potential EEOC inquiry about your company’s EEO-1 related behavior.
This webinar will cover the following topics:
- What does the EEOC require you to file by September 30, 2019?
- What statistical tests has the EEOC proposed to identify potential discrimination?
- How are the EEOC’s proposed statistical tests implemented?
- How can you use these statistical tests on your draft EEO-1 data to determine the risks you face?
- How many statistically significant “findings” are likely to be found by random chance?
- How can your test results help you to adjust your employment practices or prepare for an EEOC investigation?
