Are You Spending Most of Your Time Defending Yourself Against Complaints?
Having Problems Ensuring Fairness in Your Selection Process?
In today's "litigation happy" environment it is critical that your organization's selection, promotion, training and termination programs are in compliance with EEO guidelines. The following provides an overview of key EEO guidelines and Competency Management Incorporated's (CMI) related experience.
Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, as amended by the Equal Employment Opportunity Act of 1972 and the Civil Rights Act of 1991, is the major federal law prohibiting discrimination in employment on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, or national origin. Title VII and the following Acts are administered by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and enforced by the EEOC and the Courts.
Typical awards and settlements are in the millions of dollars. You may have seen the headline "$2.1 million settlement in PUC age bias suit" with regard to the EEOC versus a western state Public Utilities Commission. The lead attorney for the complainants was quoted as stating:
"The bottom line is that it's [the PUC selection process] going to be a significantly different, more job related testing process monitored and developed by professionals."
Similarly you possibly read the Business Week article "The Swat Team of Bias Litigation" which mentioned the $107 million settlement in a class action Title VII case against a large supermarket chain.
We are the organization selected by the PUC and approved by the EEOC to design, implement and monitor the new process referred to by the plaintiff's attorney. We also helped the supermarket chain reduce the size of the settlement, and were selected by them, and approved by plaintiffs, to design and implement a Company- wide selection and promotion process.
