  • Do the Supreme Court’s Holdings in Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. v. Dukes Apply to OFCCP?
    by Bill Doyle - April 23, 2019
    In the prior article in this series, we concluded that the Supreme Court’s pattern or practice holdings in Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. v. Dukes, 564 U.S. 338 (2011), provide important guardrails applicable to OFCCP enforcement actions. The Supreme Court has addressed substantive discrimination standards under Title VII relatively infrequently, and, when it does, its holdings are quite consequential. In Dukes, the Supreme...
  • Missing Data and AAP/EEO Compliance - Applicant Data
    by Cassie Shamber, Dan Kuang - April 23, 2019
    On the face of it, missing data seems more of a mundane nuisance than a problem. This is particularly the case with applicants' voluntary self-reporting of race and gender data.

    by Cheryl L. Behymer, Sheila Willis - April 23, 2019
    A federal judge in Washington D.C. sent shockwaves through the employer community recently by reinstating a revised version of the EEO-1 report, which is now once again set to gather compensation information from employers across the country.

It’s hard to hear a new idea when the chang...
