Adverse impact analyses and test validation promote social justice and equity. Employers who unknowingly use invalid tests or recruitment procedures that have an adverse impact are reducing minority and/or female representation in their workforce, unfairly screening out qualified workers and (worst of all) just plain discriminating. Dan Biddle's Adverse Impact and Test Validation provides you with analyses that allow you to identify which of your selection procedures have adverse impact. The validation steps will help you decide whether to keep the selection procedure (because it's valid), change it, or stop using it altogether. This second edition contains new material on using multiple regression to evaluate pay practices and provides step-by-step instructions for using SPSS or Excel for evaluating your company's pay practices for possible inequities. New content on how to define "Internet applicants" and set up defensible Basic Qualifications (BQs) for online recruiting will help employers ensure compliance with EEO regulations and screen in qualified applicants. Specific guidelines for developing and validating written job knowledge tests, such as those used for police and fire promotional testing, have also been included in this new edition. The CD included in the back cover of the book includes tools (which may be used on a trial evaluation basis) describing several of the functions described in the book, including Adverse Impact Toolkit®, Test Validation and Analysis Program® (TVAP®), Guidelines Oriented Job Analysis® (GOJA®) Manual, and Content Validity Checklists. This highly pragmatic guide goes beyond the concepts, theories and ideas behind adverse impact and test validation. It not only explains what to do but crucially, also shows you how to do it. The second edition has been expanded to include two brand new chapters with a new Appendix and comes with new editions of the accompanying software. As a means of protecting your organization from litigation, damage to employee relations and to your corporate reputation, Adverse Impact and Test Validation is a 'must-have' purchase for human resource professionals, testing and recruitment specialists.

Bouaphakeo, 136 S. Ct. 1036 (2016). Executive Order 13706, signed on Labor Day 2015, takes effect in 2017. It requires federal contractors to allow employees to accrue at least one hour of paid sick leave for every 30 hours they work, and unused sick leave can be carried over from year to year. Mid-2016 DOL regulations make millions more white-collar employees eligible for overtime pay, by greatly increasing the salary threshold for the white-collar exemption. Updates on the PATH Act (Protecting Americans From Tax Hikes; Pub. L. No. 114-113. The DOL published the "fiduciary rule" in final form in April 2016, with full compliance scheduled for January 1, 2018. The rule makes it clear that brokers who are paid to offer guidance on retirement accounts and Individual Retirement Arrangements (IRAs) are fiduciaries. In early 2016, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) announced it would allow charging parties to request copies of the employer's position statement in response to the charge. The Supreme Court ruled that, in constructive discharge timing requirements run from the date the employee gives notice of his or her resignation--not the effective date of the resignation. Certiorari was granted to determine if the Federal Arbitration Act (FAA) preempts consideration of severing provisions for unconscionability.
