Federal contractors with long standing affirmative action programs are likely well-versed in the standard set of analyses (e.g., utilization, adverse impact, etc.) related to equal employment opportunity and diversity. However, those are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to ways of examining issues in your organization. This webinar will present a set of additional research questions worth asking and introduce you to some less commonly used yet potentially valuable analytic approaches used to get the answers you need.

While efforts to pass a federal law (e.g., Paycheck Fairness Act) to strengthen the Equal Pay Act have been unsuccessful, California, New York, Maryland, as well as several other states have passed laws to target the wage gap and pay discrimination. As a result, organizations find themselves navigating a complex set of federal and state-level laws and regulations with different standards of enforcement as well as different risks. Employers who do business in these states will want to tune in as DCI’s Dave Sharrer and Kayo Sady discuss:
  • Which states have passed laws and how do each of them define pay discrimination?
  • What is (and is not) allowed as an affirmative defense to discrimination allegations?
  • How can employers proactively assess risk and ensure compliance with federal and state laws and regulations?

In addition, this report will be uploaded to the Government’s website. During this webinar, we will discuss: Key reporting dates; General reporting and data requirements; Definition of ‘pay’ and ‘bonus’; Which employees need to be included in the report; Deep dive into the prescribed analytics; Suggestions for appropriate narrative statements.

There are a variety of useful metrics related to the evaluation of diversity and inclusion outcomes. One particularly informative and underused metric relates to the amount of time it takes for critical employment outcomes to happen. Timing analysis can identify critical barriers to achieving diversity goals related to a wide variety of employee outcomes, including time to promotion, eligibility, voluntary turnover, merit increase, profit sharing, and entry into leadership development training. Speakers will (1) describe a variety of research questions that can be explored using the survival analysis approach to measuring the duration of time to an outcome or event, (2) share how this approach works, (3) exemplify scenarios where it can be instrumental in identifying potential diversity gaps in the workplace, and (4) provide sample output and interpret results. This webinar will provide you with a unique perspective on diversity measurements that can be explored to drive diversity and inclusion initiatives in the workplace.

Since rescinding the Standards and Guidelines and issuing Directive 307, OFCCP has been exploring novel theories of discrimination and applying unusual analytic strategies in its investigations. The past two years of OFCCP audits, in particular, to which DCI has been exposed have illuminated the agency’s perspective on what types of data aggregation and analytic strategies are consistent with Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Respectfully, DCI strongly disagrees with OFCCP’s apparent approach to investigating potential compensation discrimination in such matters. In this webinar, we highlight some of the most problematic ‘myths’ of compensation analyses to which we have seen OFCCP subscribe.
  • All forms of compensation (base pay, bonuses, overtime, etc.) can be combined into ‘total compensation’ and effectively analyzed using a single pay model.
  • Different groups of similarly situated employees can be grouped together (i.e., aggregated) and effectively analyzed.
  • A pay factor that correlates with protected group status is ‘tainted.’
  • A statistical disparity in an aggregation of similarly situated employee groups (SSEGs) forming a pay analysis group (PAG) indicates that there are unexplained differences between protected classes in each SSEG forming the PAG.

Big Data and the data science revolution are cutting edge topics in the world of work. Big Data methods have particularly interesting applications in human resource management contexts, where large preexisting databases may house an infinite amount of information related to employees and applicants. Big data applications are already in practice as they relate to recruitment and selection, and the verdict may still be out on their utility and risk. This webinar will focus on:
  • Defining what big data Means;
  • Describing real world examples of big data in the context of recruiting and employee selection;
  • Considering job-relatedness, adverse impact, and broader conceptualizations of equal employment opportunity.

Summary: Employment interviews are a common part of the selection process across a wide variety of jobs. Just as with any other kind of selection procedure, interviews are susceptible to legal scrutiny, and not all interviews are created equal in terms of how well they can hold up to these challenges. The professional literature and our own practical experiences point to structured interviews supported by job analysis research as both the most defensible and most effective type of interview. In this webinar, we explain the basics of these interviews so that you can learn how your own interviews compare to best practices. Topics covered include:
  • Elements of interview structure
  • Legal challenges: what they look for and how to defend
  • Applicant reactions and other practical considerations
