WEBINAR: Background Screening Compliance
Background Screening can be daunting and can result in litigation when not done right. This webinar will cover the core obligations of employers and help you establish a solid policy for fair screening.
In a recent interview published by Marketplace Morning Report, David Brancaccio discuss a new study from the National Bureau of Economic Research which suggests that systemic racial discrimination during the job application process is still happening.
Researchers sent more than 80,000 fake job applications for entry-level openings to Fortune 500 firms and found that, on average, applications with distinctively Black sounding names like Leticia or Jamal were about 10% less likely to get a call back than comparable applications with distinctively white names such as Emily or Greg.
What was surprising was that a significant portion of the hiring discrimination documented in the study was associated with a small portion of the 108 companies, according to Evan Rose, a Saieh Family Research Fellow at the University of Chicago and a co-author of the study.
One big open question is whether or not the authors of the study will release the name of the companies which they attributed the lions’ share of the discriminatory behavior to. Don’t be on that list! Fair Screen can help you bring fairness to your selection processes.
