Technical Advisory Committee Report on Best Practices in Adverse Impact Analyses

A technical advisory committee of EEO experts was organized by the Center for Corporate Equality (CCE) to wrestle with many data, statistical, and legal issues associated with adverse impact analyses. The goal of the TAC was to help provide the EEO community with technical “best practice” guidance on how to conduct adverse impact analyses. Toward this end, the TAC consisted of 70 of the nation’s top experts in adverse impact analyses. With regard to TAC process, CCE created an extensive survey asking TAC members to indicate how they would handle a variety of data, statistical, and legal issues commonly encountered in conducting adverse impact analyses. Together, expert survey results and discussion from TAC focus groups were used to create a best practice document, “Technical Advisory Committee Report on Best Practices in Adverse Impact Analyses”.
