34th Annual SIOP Conference 2019 PreConference WorkshopEqual employment opportunity (EEO) law and workplace discrimination continue to be important areas for I-O psychologists and HR professionals involved in personnel selection research and practice. There have been a number of recent important court rulings and regulatory updates from federal agencies like EEOC, DOJ and OFCCP. This workshop will update the I-O community on these topics, with particular emphasis on recent class action systemic discrimination rulings. To enhance the experience, the I-O presenters have partnered with two nationally known lawyers from both plaintiff and defense sides of the table, who are particularly well versed in statistical issues. Presenters will  collaborate to discuss (1) recent regulatory changes, (2) significant class action case law, (3) various EEO issues related to personnel selection (e.g., pay equity, the #metoo movement, use of big data in recruitment and selection) and (4) implications for I-O and HR professionals.
