The Uniform Guidelines on Employee Selection Procedures


The Uniform Guidelines on Employee Selection Procedures provides guidance to employers to help them comply with federal laws which prohibit discrimination in employment based on race, color, religion, sex and national origin. The guidelines apply to employers who are subject to Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 or Executive Order 11246. (See Appendix A for fuller description.) An employment selection process is considered discriminatory if it has an adverse impact on the hiring, promotion or other employment opportunites of individuals because of race, sex or ethnicity; that is, if the selection rate for any race, sex or ethnic group is less than 80 percent for the group having the highest selection rate. A selection procedure that results in an adverse impact is allowed to stand if the employer can demonstrate that the test measures a trait necessary for successful performance of the job. Or, the employer can eliminate the factor from the selection process which has caused the adverse impact. The Guidelines also require maintenance of detailed records on the employment selection procedures.
