On Monday, the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) issued a fact sheet on employment testing.
The fact sheet covers, at a high level, various topics including:
- types of tests
- related EEO laws (Title VII, ADA, ADEA) and burden-shifting scenarios
- the Uniform Guidelines on Employee Selection Procedures
- recent related EEOC litigation and settlements
- employer best practices
For those of you familiar with the legal context of employment testing, this isn't new information. But it is a nice quick summary of some of the major points, and could be very useful for someone not as familiar with this area.
For a more thorough treatment, I recommend the U.S. Department of Labor's guide for employers on testing and selection.
