Adverse Impact Flags - Finding the Truth Behind the Numbers
Rick Holt (Resolution Economics), Guy Brenner, (Proskauer)  

A finding of adverse impact in hiring, promotions, or terminations is alarming, but it is prudent to dig deeper and ensure the problematic results are correct.  This program will equip compliance personnel to effectively explore, validate, and resolve these findings.  The session will include practical guidance on how to: 
• Validate relevant selection process data 
• Review the appropriateness of the adverse impact analysis methodology 
• Gauge the appropriateness of possible remediation strategies
