OutSolve’s Take

This is the kind of failure to hire case involving low level positions that remains the OFCCP’s “bread and butter”. It also highlights the agency’s continued identification of statistically significant differences in selection rates without any indication of what facially-neutral selection practice caused them. Three facilities were audited, but only one was cited for hiring discrimination. Clients are advised to maintain documentation of their hiring processes, collecting and maintaining proper dispositioning reasons, and of the importance of regularly monitoring those processes. An Affirmative Action Program that is prepared in a timely manner and reviewed by all appropriate levels of management is an important first step in identifying and addressing potential problem areas.
